When I first stumbled into the bright lights of Brisbane as an overawed and badly dressed culture-nerd, I promptly declared that I would spend my life here doing nothing but wearing the flounciest skirts and watching the indiest theatre I could find. I was half right. Since ditching the skirts for walking shoes, I have chased the creative everywhere from the rooftop bars of South Brisbane to the London yard of the Globe. As a Creative Drinks writer, I will be your point-woman on this continuing mission to track down the best of the Brisbane Arts scene. Sitting on uncomfortable milk crate chairs, holding drunken actors’ glasses, risking hypothermia in day ticket lines and making awkward eye contact with slam poets, I will endeavour to bring you the words, performances and films you need to feed your creative fires.
