Artist in Residence: Dead Puppet Society

Mark your connection to Brisbane in collaboration with Dead Puppet Society.

Please note: This residency project has been re-engaged for a special pop-up installation in Queen Street Mall from Saturday 4 November – Monday 27  November 2023.

Dead Puppet Society is a Brisbane-based design-led theatre company. As Artist in Residence, they will respond to the exhibition themes explored in Making Place: 100 Views of Brisbane through a participatory project that involves the wider Brisbane community. During the residency, visitors can reflect on Brisbane locations – both public and private – that are significant to them. Responses will be collected through a custom-made centrepiece. It is envisaged the data collected will be used to build a high-tech model for place-based storytelling in the future.
