Metro Arts is turning 40 in 2020 and it’s on the move…

Many artists and co-creatives will be sad to learn that the long-term independent and D.I.Y practices located in a CBD Brisbane heritage-listed building during the last (almost) 40 years are on the move. Metro Arts is an incredible community resource and it has a rich and buried collective archive, hopefully this archive will come out of the shadows and be easily accessible and discoverable soon….
