Create, connect and celebrate at the BrisAsia Festival 2016
Over three action-packed weeks in February, Brisbane locals are invited to celebrate the best of Asian art and culture as part of the BrisAsia Festival 2016.
A highlight on Brisbane’s cultural calendar, the BrisAsia Festival 2016 will profile the work of local Asian artists, promote a range of Asian events held across the city, and celebrate the diversity of Brisbane’s Asian communities. Kicking off on Friday February 5 and running until Sunday February 28, the festival boasts an extensive program of free events and displays, including QAGOMA’s 8th Asia Pacific Triennial of Contemporary Art exhibition, a William Jolly Bridge art illumination, a fun-filled Vietnamese New Year Festival, family-friendly karate workshops and Tai Chi Qigong sessions, a World Wetlands Day discovery walk around the Boondal Wetlands, and a Thai cuisine cooking demonstration.
Kicking off the festival is the vibrant, all-ages Neon Pop this Friday February 5 in Reddacliff Place. Immerse yourself in Asian pop culture with an eclectic cosplay and lantern parade (don’t be afraid to dress up), K-Pop, C-Pop and J-Pop dance crews, live music, street art and more – there will even be an outdoor DJ rave and light show for you to lose your inhibitions and dance the night away.
