Free and fun for all ages. No bookings required. Experience events in person or join virtually. All events from the Maiwar Green are live-streamed, Auslan interpreted and closed captioned.

Visitors can catch pop-up performances by the Brisbane Pride Choir and APT10 artist Brian Fuata; drop by the story garden featuring APT10 artist Gordon Hookey, writers Nadine Chemali and Sandhya Parappukkaran and members of The Pacific Climate Warriors; and join art-making workshops designed by APT10 artists Phuong Ngo, Shannon Novak, Vipoo Srivilasa and the Brisbane Tongan Community.

Festival-goers can hear from special guests and artists as they explore the world we inhabit and the future of art in thought-provoking talks titled ‘So…where are you from?’, ‘Art Futures’, ‘Wit: A Weapon of Mass Disruption’ and ‘I’m Not Racist But…'

On Sunday 24 April at 11.00am, the cooking demonstration ‘You Are What You Eat’ will feature former Masterchef contestant and chef Emily Yeoh and APT10 artist Vipoo Srivilasa, sharing recipes close to their hearts and highlighting the role played by food in connecting to and celebrating culture.

The APT10 Festival concludes with a curated Performance Extravaganza, featuring high energy performances by some of Queensland’s best dance troupes, musicians and more from 2.00 to 5.00pm on Sunday 24 April.
