> Brisbane Artist Run Initiatives Festival
The BARI Festival is an initiative founded by the crew at Jugglers Art Space in 2008, aimed at celebrating and acknowledging the creative and cultural contribution that is often harbored by ARIs within a city.
Brisbane is now home to several well established Artist Run Initiatives each working within their own unique artistic frameworks and services for artists and members of the public. This year BARI will be host to a variety of events between the 1st – 30th of October staged at several Artist Run Initiatives throughout Brisbane, each providing workshops, forums, open studios, live entertainment and art exhibitions showcasing Brisbane emerging artists.
BARI is committed to developing programs, supporting Brisbane Artist Run Initiatives and identifies the need for opportunities for emerging artists via creative and cultural avenues + spaces. By staging and facilitating an annual festival BARI seeks to maintain a critical and ongoing dialogue between Brisbane Artist Run Initiatives and aims to cultivate awareness of the vital role Artist Run Spaces contribute to a city like Brisbane.
This year the BARI festival will host a program jam packed of events that will occur over the month of October and will accessible to the wider public. Events that take place during BARI are unique to the nature of each space, they often range form specialized workshops, open studios, forums, critical discussions, performance + installation/site specific works all run/staged by innovative arts practitioners.
Brisbane is now home to approximately 18 visual arts focused ARI’s each engaging in critical dialogue with each other and working within their unique conceptual frameworks. All of these spaces are located within 4km of the Brisbane CBD and occupy warehouses, conventional gallery spaces, window displays & converted Queenslanders.
