UR[BNE] Festival engages Brisbane’s forgotten spaces
At some point in your daily travels, you’ve probably noticed some your city’s forgotten and underused spaces – those dark voids filled with possibility, awaiting the ideas of a starry-eyed someone to revive them.
From March 28–30, UR[BNE] Festival – now in its third year – celebrates the hollow hideaways, lairs and dens of Brisbane. Taking place along the river at Queens Wharf, the three-day festival will transform this spot just south of William Street into an active realm filled with food, fun and festivities.
A team of local designers from UR[BNE] Collective encounters its city with fresh eyes each day and hopes to change Brisbane dwellers’ perceptions about their urban spaces, by transforming less-than-inspiring empty cavities into homes for pop-up activities.
This year’s festival will bring art, markets and entertainment together, alongside skating competitions, bike riding and musical performances featured as part of Project 24. Live street art will also be created for an art performance event entitled Blank Canvas.
