look out, look in

I have said a lot in the past about the old Brisbane Emerging Arts Festival.

When we have a program locked down, I am going to say a whole lot more, because I won’t be able to stop myself. I won’t. I won’t.

(Stop me.)

But before we can lock down, we have to luck out. And for that you have to answer the call of the mild, the beat of the great, the grate of the beef.

This is what you could be in for:

Brisbane Emerging Art Festival was established in 2010 to promote and present Brisbane’s leading emerging artists and the city’s contemporary arts culture. The vision of the festival is to highlight and connect local artists, while being a catalyst for new and experimental art practice.

The 2013 Brisbane Emerging Art Festival will connect audiences to the city’s contemporary emerging and independent arts. The festival will showcase some of the most outstanding visual art, music, performance, fashion and film currently being developed in Brisbane. For one evening, the best from Brisbane’s artist-run initiatives, tertiary institutions and private studios will be showcased at The Judith Wright Centre of Contemporary Arts.

The Brisbane Emerging Art Festival makes a significant contribution to the development of contemporary emerging art in Brisbane and engages with communities nationally and internationally. With the support of the local creative community, Brisbane Emerging Art Festival has become an annual event which engages and celebrates Brisbane’s emerging arts sector.

This is a community platform, proudly produced by Vegas Spray ARI.
