Welcome to BRISTOPIA, a Brisbane of your own making!
As Brisbane grows, reflect upon the elements of the city that nurture and connect the community. BRISTOPIA invites you to contribute your voice to this conversation by exploring the values you hold in relation to community, the environment and well-being.
Blending interactive technology with whimsical illustrations by Megan McKean, this playful installation places community at the heart of the city and seeks to inspire the dreamer in everyone. Immerse yourself in the animated Brisbane cityscape, create your own BRISTOPIA and email it to friends and family, and add your voice to the collaborative sticker wall.
