26 Jun QATA conference exclusive opportunity
The Annual QATA State conference is fast approaching and we are very excited to offer another exclusive experience for conference attendees who’d like to continue networking into the evening of Friday July 19. In addition to the two full days of curriculum exchange and creative experiences on offer, we have organised an exclusive private tour of Brisbane City Council’s Outdoor Gallery – an ever-evolving public art gallery, presented by Design Brisbane.
On the night, we will wander through Brisbane’s streets and arty laneways, exploring the current exhibition of Indigenous Art Program: Shared Connections curated by Blaklash Projects, which features work by Kim Ah Sam (one of our conference workshop facilitators). Along the way Pia Robinson, Urban Designer in the Public Art team within Design Brisbane, will unpack this urban gallery and provide insight into the workings of the unique spaces located within the urban jungle. The tour will also preview a new site-specific, moving-image commission – a first for Council’s Public Art Collection.
The tour will depart the Roundhouse Theatre at Kelvin Grove at 6pm sharp and travel via maxi-taxi to Burnett Lane in the city. Pia Robinson will greet participants at the Queen Street Mall end of Burnett Lane and commence the tour. The official experience will conclude at 8:15pm at Howard Smith Wharves. Council recently delivered the restoration of the Howard Smith Wharves site to create an exciting new public precinct on the banks of the Brisbane River. There are a number of eateries located in the vicinity, with further options for dining at Eagle Street Pier, within walking distance.
Participants will make their own way home.
This opportunity is offered to conference attendees at no cost but we require a commitment, so please register via the link below.
The QATA executive acknowledges the generous support of the Brisbane City Council Public Art Team in providing this opportunity.
