The Project

Collect artwork and writing.
Exhibit all the submitted pieces of work.
Deliver all the work to random people via bicycle.

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. 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.

Anyone who wishes to be involved is invited to participate, regardless of age, education, profession, gender, or location. Artworks accepted include drawings, photographs, text, pictures, stickers, posters – basically anything ‘creative’ and considered that can be rolled and distributed by bicycle. Writers, poets, and lyricists are also invited to get involved in the project. Please submit as many contributions as you would like – in some cases artwork is reproduced to allow more people to receive your work. You can submit your work to us through post, email or at our drop-off location.

Submissions aren’t curated for Papergirl, we use everything that is submitted, so the artists and writers decide what will be given away in distribution. The art rolls cannot be sold and are not delivered to subscribers, so folks eager for a roll just have to be at the right place at the right time!

Everyone can participate by submitting art, telling others about the project, helping with gallery set up and roll preparation, or by helping with the bicycle distribution. If you are interested in being involved, contact
