A multimedia, design and marketing agency has seized an opportunity to open a new office and gallery space this month thanks to the assistance of Toowoomba Regional Council’s (TRC) Creative CBD Toowoomba program.
TRC Planning and Development Committee chair Cr Megan O’Hara Sullivan said Rare Squid Creative today (May 13) launched a new venture with photographer Theresa Hall in the former Toowoomba GPO. The partnership’s first gallery exhibition will open at 6pm on Friday, May 21 at Suite 3, 138-140 Margaret Street, Toowoomba.
Cr O’Hara Sullivan said the joint venture was the second tenancy in Council’s Creative Toowoomba CBD project following the opening of the pop-up Alexandra Lawson Gallery in Ruthven Street in late 2020. The overall project is the first of its kind in Queensland.
“Council is pleased to help promote business renewal in creative industries across Toowoomba’s CBD,” Cr O’Hara Sullivan said.
“Rare Squid Creative is a Toowoomba-based artistic partnership which will pair its regular marketing services with an artist run initiative (ARI) to host art exhibitions and run creative workshops.
