Origins

Although still in its infancy, Brissie-ism is considered the world’s most influential and revolutionary cultural movement to come out of Brisbane, Australia.

Traits

Full of stories, not ourselves.

Elements

Cultural commentators define Brissie-ism as more than just an cultural movement, but also a general mindset and way of life. Proponents of Brissie-ism are friendly, down-to-earth, laid-back types, who enjoy a good wander around a Museum as well as Friday night footy.

Aspects

Brissie-ism is rooted in the notion our stories have more layers than a Queenslander in Victoria. The movement has inspired such critical reviews as, “Nah yeah, good but” and “good stuff, very Brisbane”.
