Experiences and culture

Brisbane City Council is dedicated to fostering an innovative and creative community and to providing opportunities for everyone to participate in the cultural life of our diverse and vibrant city. Take a walk through the city or suburbs to see public art displays, watch a show in the Skydome at the Planetarium, or dance to music and performances at Riverstage. See the LIVE guide event calendar for up and coming arts and cultural activities in Brisbane. Most of these activities are free and suitable for all ages.


Public art

Council has an extensive public art collection of more than 500 diverse permanent artworks on display throughout Brisbane City and our suburbs.

Outdoor Gallery

Our Outdoor Gallery transforms Brisbane's laneways and city streets into imaginative, curious and engaging spaces. Check out the current exhibition - Women's Work.

City of Lights

Decorative lighting has been installed on buildings, bridges and trees to highlight our city and its features and to create an exciting city at night.
