Brisbane City Council’s exhibit at the HIA Renovate & Build Expo at the Brisbane Convention Centre was a roaring success with the engaging display attracting a lot of attention on the GreenSmart Building Zone. This custom display created by RED-i Design showcased an interior house scene where various tips were positioned over areas that could be altered to become more ‘green’.
The ADAPTable Home Solutions exhibit was another draw card for the three-day event featuring a three bedroom home with both indoor and outdoor living, made from three modular components. The ADAPTable home was built on site and designed exclusively for the expo, showcasing innovative living space solutions as well as energy efficient products from exhibitors.
All in all it was a great expo for home builders, renovators and those who are interested in sustainable solutions for the future.

Fete de la Musique Brisbane 2009 was a huge success seeing more than 220 musical acts perform. The event, which took place on Sunday June 21, was simultaneously hosted by more than 330 cities around the world.
Despite the rainy conditions some of Brisbane’s biggest acts were among the hundreds of artists who performed.
Famous French, singer, pianist and guitar player, Martin Rappenea headlined the festival and was joined ny local headliners Tyrone Noonan, No Limits, Sound Collective and Ruby Tigers.
Brisbane was a scene of musical diversity: from blues and classical to reggae and rock, captivating the city in over 60 unique spaces such as libraries, musueums, cafes, churches, parks, hospitals and city cats.
The festival was celebrated around the world with the help of a few star players. The home of Fete de la Musique, Paris, saw US singer Chris Isaak and British pop star Seal headlining an evening concert in Bois de Boulogne, while the Paris orchestra performed at the Louvre museum.

The theme ‘NZ identity’ – how nine separate designers from all over the world imagine New Zealand through typography. Now it is possible to discover our contemporary world through Flickr, webcams, online news, in a ‘couch journey’, from wherever you are… how new technologies degrade our imagination, and potentially create a fake identity of the world…
Something about music photography is truly captivating, the reflection and intimacy that is gained through freezing such intense emotion has always grabbed me. UnderExposed is an exhibition featuring some of the best – established and emerging – music photographers in Brisbane. Bringing together those select shooters who have captured the visual side of Brisbane’s aural history – be it with emerging local bands, or international ones – UnderExposed aims to showcase that fleeting moment in time where a subject, ordinarily so intense and public, is caught in a period of stillness and reflection: the essence of the show, the artist, encapsulated in that one shot. There will be live music throughout the exhibition as well as photography workshops. The exhibition runs from this Friday – April 17 – to May 4 at Joshua Levi Galleries in Woolloongabba.
