The DIY Festival for 2015 has now completed, and was an incredible success for all involved! We can't wait to head back into our meeting room and start working towards DIY 2016, as we grow bigger, get stronger and evolve as an arts community to bring you the best arts event that Brisbane has to offer!
The DIY Festival this year had so many excellent artworks and performances, and rewarding such excellence was a difficult decision to make. However, after much deliberation, on our last night of the festival, we presented awards acknowledging the excellence and passion shown throughout the process of our incredible first festival.
