Workshops and Inductions

Workshops and Inductions

For many years The Edge, State Library of Queensland, have been running workshops for community.

These workshops documented in The SLQ Wiki cover a broad range of topics, ranging from simple 45 minute engagements to three hour deliveries over multiple days. To check the current available workshops, check out whats on at State Library and search for “The Edge”

The Edge Inductions

Throughout the year there are a series of induction sessions in the fabrication lab, recording studio as well as the digital media lab, these provide people with the basic skills, safety awareness and knowledge of how to efficiently use the resources available.

The Edge Public Workshops

Public workshops have generally been trialed and then delivered successfully as a public program.

Not all workshops publicly delivered at The Edge are available in this wiki, but workshops that are developed by State Library staff are expected to be documented on here.

Workshops may have been delivered and developed by external contractors with a brief, developed internally by State Library staff, or in combination.

In Development Workshops

Prototype workshops and trial workshops are initial ideas, works-in-progress or multiple iterations of workshops. They are ideas type content.

These will usually start as a prototype, move to a trial version and either revert or stay there pending further development, or if successfully delivered and incorporated into programming, move to the public workshop section.

Please read through the Workshop Guide before getting started.

We acknowledge Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and their continuing connection to land and as custodians of stories for millennia. We are inspired by this tradition in our work to share and preserve Queensland's memory for future generations.
