100% Brisbane

When: From 15 July 2016 to 15 July 2019
Where: Museum of Brisbane

It’s still on in November 2018. 100% Brisbane is a semi-permanent interactive exhibition that showcases the Queensland capital’s living history. As seen from the dates, the event will run for three years. 100% Brisbane is definitely worth every visitor’s time because it does not just turn the spotlight on the city. It reflects the real face of the community by deconstructing the population. Additionally, the exhibition is backed by accurate data, i.e. from the Australian Bureau of Statistics. It has scanned the capital for 100 everyday folks that represent the entirety of Brisbane. Hence, the heart of the experience is about REAL people with REAL stories to tell.
That’s not all. 100% Brisbane will also feature a documentary that covers the history of Brisbanites. The documentary is narrated and written by William McInnes – an actor and author. To top things off, you can also see Brisbane-focused contemporary art. They are commissions from Australian artists.
