Brisbane River Art Program

Creative Road worked with Brisbane City Council to develop a dynamic framework and build a case for investment in public art outcomes along the inner reaches of the Brisbane River.

Over six months and in close consultation with stakeholders, a connected series of public artworks and cultural experiences were developed and presented in The Brisbane River Art Framework report.

Our scope included researching international benchmarks and the creation of visualisations for each of the recommended projects. Our team included specialist consultants Paul Rogers (tourism) and Diadem (wayfinding). Recommendations included a diverse range of complimentary art projects to activate and uplift key sites along the project site. The framework was designed to assist Council in delivering a sophisticated and innovative public domain, distinguishing Brisbane as one of the worlds great creative cities.

Culture adds a tremendous value to a city.

Very often that value is monetary, in terms of both cultural experiences as well as the effects on the surrounding areas… but that value goes even deeper than that; it defines us as an inclusive and innovative city.
