The Lightspace crew unveils stunning new Art Deco events space Loyal Hope of the Valley

If you’ve ever had the pleasure of attending a function or event at Fortitude Valley’s Lightspace, you’ll know that the team behind the venue is second to none. From the space itself to the running of its operations, this well-oiled fun machine has a sterling reputation in Brisbane. We teased in last week’s Pavement Whispers that the crew has been hard at work on a brand-new space, so we thought we’d give you a closer look at what they’ve been busy creating – collect your jaw from the floor and step inside Loyal Hope of the Valley. more

Listen to the astonishing tales and uplifting insights of swimming legend-turned-model Casey Legler

Real talk – who doesn’t love a redemption arc? Hearing the stories of a serious struggle while knowing that the subject came out on top is one of the more uplifting moments in human life – knowing that even against insurmountable odds and a devastating history, we are capable of turning our lives around. Casey Legler is one such person – a former French Olympian and model whose story really has to be heard to be believed. For one night only on Wednesday May 8 at Brisbane Powerhouse, Casey will be baring her soul in an enlightening and uplifting conversation session. more

Paint the town – Brisbane Street Art Festival returns to reveal the city’s true colours

Ask anyone about the street-art scene in Australia and they will generally be quick to point a finger at Melbourne as our country’s capital of cool – but this is a frightfully incorrect assumption. Brisbane and its creatives have long been toiling away to make a name for our city as a major culture hub, thanks in large part to those who are dedicated to eradicating the stigma behind street art. Returning for its fourth year, Brisbane Street Art Festival is set to (literally) paint the town from May 4–19, bringing together a host of brilliant artists adding colour to the everyday. more
