Brisbane Art Design (BAD) 2019 is where Brisvegas, art and design interact for 17 full days of exhibitions, performances, talks, art tours, workshops and open studios. The inaugural BAD festival will be held from 10 to 26 May 2019, and showcases over 150 Brisbane creatives, from emerging talents who are carving (or sculpting or painting) their mark locally, to experienced artists who are redefining creativity locally and abroad.
