Brisbane as a Storied City
Through our Brisbane as a Storied City program we present ten superb writers and poets in the places they have drawn inspiration from. We travel from West End with Andrew Stafford on his seminal book on Brisbane’s music scene, Pig City, to Brisbane City Hall with Clare McFadden’s The Flying Orchestra to the Boondall Wetlands with our very own First Nations curator, Ellen van Neerven, on their debut work Heat and Light.
The spaces of our city, plus the stories we tell, create the place we live. As part of the Brisbane as a Storied City program, we have launched an ambitious project to map our city in story with curated and commissioned notes, anecdotes, poetry, snippets and a smattering of urban myth that reveal our communal, individual and sometimes secret connections to place.
