For the last few months, Harbinger’s John Armstrong has been acting as a mentor to program directors of The DIY Festival, providing support and advice in the lead up to the event. Now, The DIY Festival is gearing up and we are pleased to share the most recent update.

The DIY Festival: Evolve

Presented by The Stan Dup Ensemble
Thursday 24 – Sunday 27 November | 6:00pm – 11:30pm
Raw Dance Company, 46 Evesham Street, Moorooka QLD 4105

Live music, dance, film, animation, theatre and visual art, all in one space, all united by a
common theme. Opening on Thursday 24 November and continuing until 27 November, The Stan Dup Ensemble presents The DIY Festival: Evolve.

Taking place at Raw Dance Company in Moorooka, The DIY Festival creates an unmatched
creative vibe and brings artist and audience together in a flood of artistic excellence. Featuring around 100 independent Brisbane-based artists, the festival features a wide variety of engaging and inspiring work, all created with the same starting point, the festival theme of ‘EVOLVE’.

An average night at The DIY Festival is not like any average night that you can imagine. As you enter the building, you are thrown into a new, vibrant environment. You are free to do as you wish, whether it be checking out some of the best young theatre and dance performers in Brisbane, immersing yourself in the enormous visual art exhibition and live art performances, checking out the best band that you’ve never heard of, or just having a couple of drinks with friends. The DIY Festival has something for everyone.

The DIY Festival is a celebration of all things art; a collaborative presentation of some of the most innovative and creative art that Brisbane has to offer.
