For art and performances that are wild, whacky and even a little weird, check out the line up at the Judith Wright Centre.
The Judith Wright Centre of Contemporary Arts (420 Brunswick Street, Fortitude Valley) was founded in 2001 by several different performance companies, with the goal of creating a performance space for dance, music, circus, multimedia, theatre, screen and visual arts. The current Creative Industry Tenants include a rock n roll circus ensemble, an indigenous performing arts company and the Brisbane branch of the Australian Film, Television and Radio school, ensuring an wide selection of performances and exhibitions.
The centre's facilities include a 300 person performance space, an art gallery and artist studios, a screening room, a theatre, rehearsal spaces and storage facilities. Accordingly, the events calendar at the Judith Wright Centre is wide and varied – at any given time you might, for example, browse a craft display, listen to some chamber music and take in a comedy performance.
Visitors are invited to enrol in a one of the activities on offer, like the weekly contemporary dance classes or a class in writing, producing or directing.
