Parallel Precincts

Once depressed inner-city suburbs that were havens for students, migrants, artists and fringe communities, the high profile precincts of South Brisbane/West End and Fortitude Valley/New Farm have developed into fast-growing centres of urban residential and cultural development. The Millennium Arts Program now underway will see the expenditure of over $100 million on the development of a new Gallery of Modern Art (GOMA) through the Queensland Art Gallerys Two Sites-One Vision strategy. Heather locates the diversity of Brisbanes arts and culture scene through such new and existing precincts, establishments which mark an exciting transformation in the future of the cities art scene.
