Reuse, recycle, relax
Bespoke is a designer space located inside the Collectors Café on Level 2 of the Queensland Museum. Each month, local designers decorate the space with furnishings made from reclaimed and recycled materials. The August/September program launch takes place on Friday, August 24 from 5:30pm to 8:30pm.

Join Reverse Garbage (Woolloongabba) for an entertaining evening: DJs, projections, vintage fashion, food, and drinks. Guests can mingle, take a seat, and admire the sixties-inspired 'Reverse Emporium' furniture collection created by Reverse Garbage. All items have been handmade using materials salvaged from Brisbane's waste stream, such as old industrial cable spools and 100 year old fence timbers. Each upcycled item is available for sale.
