Time Out says
After 40 years in a heritage listed six-storey building in Edward Street, Brisbane's independent performance and visual arts venue began a new chapter in new West Village premises in September 2020. The new Metro Arts precinct features an underground theatre, two galleries, two rehearsal rooms and the Factory Lane outdoor precinct, encompassing the foyer, box office, café and bar. At Metro Arts you can expect to see cutting-edge local and touring theatre productions and exhibitions of contemporary art spanning installation, painting, sculpture, video and performance art.
Metro Arts has always occupied an important place in the vibrancy of culture in Brisbane. Proceeds from the sale of 109 Edward Street enabled them to establish the Metro Arts Future Fund (MAFF), designed to ensure artists and arts projects will be funded well into the future.
