Qut Reform: Art In Public Spaces says
Brisbane Street Art Festival (BSAF) with support from QUT Precincts and Creative Industries Faculty presents ReForm: Art in Public Spaces.


ReForm extends the idea of street art too art and creative intervention in public spaces, with a focus on short-term installations, creative interventions, ephemeral light works, and interactive & participatory works.

What to expect:
ReForm: Art in Public Spaces will showcase a large outdoor sculptural and installation exhibition across the QUT Creative Industries precinct at Kelvin Grove. For approximately three weeks you will be able to see select works from 15 graduate artists from QUT who have created works that reflect, respond and communicate to the spaces they inhabit across the grounds of the QUT campus. Each work offers a unique commentary on public art and the spaces it inhabits, offering a dynamic response to the either the history, geographic or physical nature of the QUT campus.

Reform: Workshops @ The Block will offer a series of workshops that will teach you the in’s and out’s of street based art forms. From screen printing to zine making you will have a chance to learn and craft your very artworks. Also on offer is a free class on how to be exhibition ready so you can showcase your creative masterpiece to the world. Don’t forget to checkout Tagbots, a fast paced and hands-on workshop to learn how to code a LEGO NXT robot to draw your own tag! Check out our workshops section for more details and ticket bookings.

BSAF & QUT Schools Program:
The ReForm program aims to provide not only an exhibit of site specific work, but also a number of learning pathways within the community. These include workshops open to the public and school programs.

The workshops are designed with the Brisbane audience in mind; street art skills and education of historical practices are met with a practical, hands on approach to street art techniques. The school programs are focused on the different ways in which students can produce their own versions of street art.

ReForm is a QUT focused program (current QUT students, recent graduates, staff and alumni) providing an opportunity for the presentation of works in unique public spaces
and engagement with BSAF’s broad community base.
