Art is for everyone!

In keeping with our ethos of making the arts accessible to as many Brisbane-ites as possible, Brisbane Festival is partnering with communities across the length and breadth of Brisbane, bringing fashion and design to the suburbs and dance to the districts. 

The 2024 Communities program will celebrate accessible arts with delivery of 49 workshops across 9 Neighbourhood and Community Centres. 

Our inclusive and accessible Communities Workshop Program is a cornerstone of the Brisbane Festival program. With the support of the Queensland Government, we are breaking down the barriers that communities face to fully access and participate in authentic and genuine arts experiences.

Now entering its fourth year of incredible events on the ground in your neck of the woods, we work with local Neighbourhood Centres and pair them with creative artists to teach workshops in art, dance, circus, fashion and more. 

Participation in these workshops is free and everyone is welcome.
