Presented by Brisbane Festival & Metro Arts
We’ve moved into our new home at West Village, and to celebrate we’re having a housewarming lead by artists!
The Artists Speak
6pm – 7.30pm
Free Registration Required for The Artists Speak.
The first artists to present at Metro’s new home speak. Featuring special spoken word performance Future Ancestors, and an artist panel where visual artists Robert Andrew, Dale Harding, and Elizabeth Willing will discuss their original commissions and current exhibitions at Metro Arts.
Future Ancestors depicts the journeys of three spoken word artists. Traversing the multitude of intricacies and intersectional complexities within Aboriginal, Torres Strait Islander, Pasifika and Indian communities, this moving spoken word piece forges a future of solidarity for all Indigenous people. Ethan Enoch-Barlow, Meleika Gesa-Fatafehi and Naavikaran present this original short-form performance work, creating a space where all voices can be heard.
7.30pm – 9pm
No Registration Required for Housewarming Wander.
The house is open so you can wander around our new spaces, see the exhibitions and commissions, take a tour of the back-of-house areas and grab a drink at our new bar.
