Welcome to my album of images promoting the community celebrations and some of the fringe theatre that is part of the Brisbane Festival. I have real concerns that the Brisbane Festival has now become a corporate product used by groups such as Santos to “soften” the public so that no-one asks those hard ethical questions. The Santos Light Show is a classic example of how entertainment is now a product sold to an audience who are expected to become passive consumers of extravaganza.
I am more interested in the community events such as Art From the Margins and some of the material at Under the Radar.
This album will develop during the month so keep coming back to explore the subversive spirit of the Festival
