Brisbane designers, it’s your time to shine as The Project hits BID.
February 24th, 2012
Since its inception in 2008, The Project has grown and grown to become one of the most anticipated and popular elements of the Saturday in Design events. Brisbane will get to flex its design muscles this year as The Project hits Fortitude Valley for the first time at Brisbane Indesign.

The city’s architects and designers will team up with exhibiting showrooms to create installations and interactive spaces that use materials in a new way, challenge conventional ways of thinking and inspire us with their creativity and innovation.
’Common thread’ is the theme, inspired by the fusion of creative industries that will be seen at this year’s Brisbane Indesign. As fashion, art, culture and design come together to maximise the positive impact we have on society, we’re celebrating this inclusive approach and exploring what links us together.
Previous Project installations have really pushed the limits of the imagination and, from the response we’ve had to date, Brisbane’s designers are raring to let their ideas fly!
