Michael Parekowhai: The Promised Land until 21 June at GOMA
This is the first major exhibition of New Zealand contemporary artist Michael Parekowhai’s work. Best of all, the exhibition is free and you can see some photos in one of my previous posts.
The Australian leg of this iconic film festival tour consists of two and a half hours of mountain-themed short films. This one’s for the adrenaline junkies and wanderlusters.
Crochet Step by Step: 15 April at Rouge Coffee
If, like me, you never took any notice when your grandma offered to teach you how to knit and crochet but in hindsight you should have paid ALL OF THE ATTENTION then this workshop will help right those wrongs. Tea cosies and snuggly beanies ahoy!
Brisbane Twilight Markets: 17 April at King George Square
I’m a sucker for markets and also late night shopping in the city so this kills two birds with one stone, as well as my wallet.
If you’re under 25 and interested in learning more about Brisbane’s iconic community broadcaster then head to Street Soundzzz for station tours, workshops, markets, and live bands.
An Evening With Noel Fielding: 27 April – 7 May at QPAC
Most shows are sold out but if you stalk the ticketing page you might just get lucky!
