The Stoke: Skateboarding in Brisbane was an exciting all access pass to Brisbane skateboarding history and culture for everyone – hardcore skateboarders, the uninitiated, museum lovers, design aficionados, extreme sports heads and fans of pop-culture.

The Stoke

The Stoke also explored the intersection of physical and artistic expression that defines the pursuit of skateboarding and the camaraderie that unites Brisbane skateboarders from all walks of life from the 1960s to today.

A highlight was a replica skate bowl, inspired by the legendary Moorooka Skate Shed that came alive throughout the exhibition with demonstrations and workshops involving members of Brisbane’s skateboarding community. The bowl has subsequently been donated and rehoused at the God Bowl, 22 Weckers Road, Mansfield, where it can continue to be enjoyed by the community.
