Critique is an art form that requires a light touch, with a splash of irony and good humour to soften the blows.
Event:
Funky Artistic Fringe in Pop-up Exhibits
Every major city has its urban precincts where creative artisans design and exhibit their wares. Helm Bar & Bistro proudly presents the 5th annual exhibition of emerging visual artists and designers based here on the Gold Coast.

Through Appel Street and into Neal Shannon Park, One Way plays out on a concrete canvas of sights, sounds and experiences – including licensed bars and tapas-style treats – set to a vibe of unearthed and undiscovered creativity.

This year's theme is Paradiso and features local fashion designers showcasing their original creations on a runway stage. The funky creative mood will be enhanced by sounds of the hottest indie bands.

ParkIT! Features 10 street artists in front of 10 canvases and turns them loose with their weapons of choice – aerosol, chalk, ink, pencil, charcoal, you name it. Pieces take shape across the course of the festival, spellbinding crowds with a live creative spectacle.
