Mission Beach Artists

19 September, 2013

Formed in 1999 by a group of local artists wanting to link and support each other’s practice.

Mission Beach Artists Inc. (MBA) originally rented exhibition space in North Mission to showcase and sell work by local and visiting artists.

The group fostered art education for adults and children and the children’s school holiday programs continue to be a valuable feature of the services provided by MBA to the community.

The members of MBA collaborate with the Mission Beach Community Art Centre Inc. to support local artists, volunteer on roster to (wo)man the centre, share ideas with the community and continue to promote Mission Beach as an iconic artistic centre in Far North Queensland.

MBA continues to offer arts workshops in different mediums and expression at the Mission Arts centre and values its role as a vital link to art education in the community through sharing knowledge and assisting new and emerging artists to grow in skills and confidence.
