Another city entered the KOLEKTIVA’s Special Place in the City platform.
Together with an Australian cultural initiative Papergirl Brisbane we launched a new project in the frame of our platform Special Place in the City. Papergirl is a Berlin initiated art event that sees people giving free art to random strangers. The project is organized in various cities worldwide. Papergirl Brisbane is a cultural initiative which works to bridge the gap between the wider public of Brisbane, and the local artists and writers who live here. In the style of American paperboys, art and writing is collected from the local creative community, exhibited in a gallery, rolled up, and then distributed by bicycle to the random passers-by in Brisbane’s CBD.
In the frame of Papergirl Brisbane project special places were collected with the help of an online form. KOLEKTIVA interpreted the stories in handwritten descriptions of places each including a map of the location. We are hoping that people who will receive the stories from Papergirl Brisbane cyclists will visit these places.
