NEW SITE: 16 Merivale Street, South Brisbane Qld 4101
Boxcopy is excited to announce our new home, 16 Merivale Street, South Brisbane. To open the new space, we will be hosting The Annual, our yearly silent auction, on Saturday 8th June. All proceeds raised will go directly to paying artist and writers fees for the forthcoming program.
COME EARLY! At 5pm, Boxcopy’s new art space will open with activations including a listening walk led by artists Libby Harward (Quandamooka Nation) and Derek Oram-Sandy (Yuggera language group). Libby will invite audiences on a silent walk to connect people to country, a site-specific practice that focuses on deep listening and following Ancestral footsteps. The walk starts and ends back at 16 Merivale Street, South Brisbane, followed by an announcement of Boxcopy’s 2019 program.
