Creative Mullumbimby

Mission Statement

Creative Mullumbimby Inc. will invigorate and reinforce Mullumbimby as a creative place.  It will do this by a place making process that is informed by research and observation of local:

  • history,
  • natural environment;
  • cultural identity; and
  • aspects of economic and social wellbeing.

This process will encompass the Mullumbimby township and its wider environment and community, including the upper Brunswick River Valley and the hinterland to the South and South-West.

Its purpose is to translate this research and observation into three types of action:

1)    To initiate and manage individual creative projects in particular public and community art and also strategic community buildings and infrastructure;

2)    Develop useful enabling strategic policy and plans through inspiration, community consultation and direct engagement with government agencies; and

3)    To act as a focus and advocate for creative activities within Mullumbimby.


Creative Mullumbimby has grown out of the Placemaking sub-committee of the Mullumbimby Chamber of Commerce with which it continues to be strongly linked.  The activities of Creative Mullumbimby and the Placemaking sub-committee are recorded on The Magic Mullum Storyboard.
