Connect the dots all year round.


Over the next few months Myriad will be connecting the dots around Queensland with a series of pop up events. Make sure you’re signed up to Myriad’s newsletter to be notified about our next activation!



Hack the Reef took place at Townsville’s Innovation HQ, on Saturday the 25th of March 2017.

Teams worked in groups to come up with a creative solution to save the Great Barrier Reef from declining water quality and climate change. Each team presented their concept in a pitch format at the end of the day and the results were inspiring. We’ll be posting updated soon but you can see some pics from the day here.
