WANT MORE:

You 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, concluding at 8:15pm at Howard Smith Wharves.
  • Click here for more information and to rsvp by Wednesday 17 July.

  • Your feedback is very important and is used each year to deliver the conference you ask for. A link to the feedback survey will be emailed to you after the conference. Please take the time to complete and return the survey so that we can continue the success of QATA conferences.
  • Your PD certificate will be emailed to you on receipt of the completed survey.

Have a wonderful conference
