As part of Brisbane City Council’s Outdoor Gallery exhibition Sunny Side Up and the Asia Pacific Architecture Festival you are invited to join us for a panel discussion exploring how identity of place is cultivated through architecture, design, art and food.
What makes something look, feel and taste like Brisbane? How is the identity of a place created through architecture, design, art and food?
Panellists from across these fields will offer their perspectives on how Brisbane’s “subtropical” identity is cultivated and reinforced. How has policy, nostalgia, tourism, sustainability and community shaped our understanding of the city’s character?
Panellists include:
Amelia Hine, artist (chair)
Phoebe Paradise, artist
Angela Hirst, Wandering Cooks
Ingrid Richards, architect, Richards and Spence
Olivia Daw, member of Gabba Community Vision group
Omar Barragan, Brisbane City Council Design Brisbane Manager
Brisbane City Council’s Outdoor Gallery transforms Brisbane’s laneways and city streets into imaginary, curious and engaging spaces. Comprising light boxes, banner, vitrines and evening projections, the Outdoor Gallery displays art outside in city street, instead of inside on gallery walls. Recently, the Outdoor Gallery has grown to now include art projections at Howard Smith Wharves.
We would like to acknowledge the Traditional Custodians of the land on which this event takes place. This event is presented as part of Brisbane City Council's Outdoor Gallery Sunny Side Up exhibition curated by Sarah Thomson and Alex Holt, and the Asia Pacific Architecture Festival, an initiative of Architecture Media and State Library of Queensland.
This project is supported by the Queensland Government through Arts Queensland.
