Brisbane’s architecture, art and design collaborations are leading Australia in winning key projects around the world.

Australia is ever changing and evolving. As we find our place in the world, we recognize where we have come from and how lucky we are. Now is the time to move on, to join the world in a bigger, brighter, global chorus. To look beyond the horizon into the possibilities of tomorrow and what can be. Taking the best of the past and the present to create and innovate a new future.

This event will explore: 

What places Brisbane apart as a vibrant market where these successful collaborations are flourishing?

How can we locally capitalize on such significant international success?

Brisbane understands the value of Expo 88, but how do we gain value from Brisbane’s significant contribution to Expo 2020 in Dubai?

How can the success of Australian artist in Australia and now in the United States show our creative influence? What contribution does it give?
