If you’ve always wanted to know a little more about the build world around you, Brisbane Open House will quench your desire.

Moving out – your last chance to check out the Bromley Room at West Village

All good things must come to an end, but this adage is particularly poignant when the thing ending is something as magical as the Bromley Room. The West Village art studio set up to display the amazing work of celebrated artist David Bromley has enjoyed a jam-packed visitor schedule since opening in April last year, but the time has come for the Bromley Room to go into hibernation. Before the doors close for good to make way for building renovations, we are getting one last chance to take a look through the arts and events space that holds some of David’s most exciting work to date. Mark Saturday March 24 and Sunday March 25 in your diary – it’s time to say goodbye to the Bromley Room. more
