Vibrant City

Inspiring works of contemporary art and design have breathed new life into our city in unexpected ways, transforming Brisbane into a vibrant city.

Discover once forgotten laneways and under-used public spaces, now transformed through street art, sculpture, outdoor galleries, creative lighting and urban activations.


Vibrant Laneways program

The Vibrant Laneways program identifies and rejuvenates forgotten spaces reintroducing them to our community in a way that is imaginative, fun and engaging. Outdoor galleries in Brisbane’s inner-city laneways change every few months – take a look at what’s on show now.
