Inhabit 11-27 July 2008

Inhabit: Ideas for better living A FREE program of art installations and events throughout Brisbane's CBD.

Inhabit is a new Brisbane City Council program of public art and events that will transform forgotten and overlooked places throughout Brisbane's CBD. During July and August, laneways, 'pocket parks' and concrete nooks around the city will be re-defined by innovative sculpture, design and events.Inhabit has been created to promote new ways of thinking about our city.

The artists showcased were asked to respond to the theme of 'Ideas of better living'. Urban growth is often linked to the idea of postive progress or 'living better'. But what does such progress mean for city residents? Inhabit explores this by reinventing the CBD's ' in between' spaces, such as service lanes. These places will become short term venues for a new experience; transforming the everyday into something memorable and unexpected. These installations of art also reflect the ever-changing nature of the city and the way we use it.See the city of Brisbane in an entirely new way.

Download a program guide/map and explore the spaces. Discover Inhabit site by site or make the most of your lunch break and check out something new. Investigate, explore and be amazed - while it lasts.
