Street Serenades: At Our Place

#Uniting our communities through the joy of music and movement

Street Serenades: At Our Place is a new public program working closely with eight neighbourhood and community centres across Brisbane to bring people together through the power and joy of music and movement.

For this very special program, we have curated a group of exceptional artists, including Queensland Ballet, Common People Dance Project and RakoPasefika, to work closely with a range of communities.

Through a month-long series of workshops and residencies, the creative team will traverse north, south, east and west Brisbane. With a focus on social cohesion, these workshops are an opportunity for people to unite through the arts in safe and welcoming spaces. Everyone is invited to the performances held during September featuring artists from Street Serenades.

Street Serenades: At Our Place is proudly supported by the Queensland Government.
