MoB launches SUNNIE #3

Brisbane’s international cultural stars feature in the latest instalment of SUNNIE – a cosmopolitan bi-annual lifestyle magazine, produced in collaboration with Museum of Brisbane.

Offering readers a celebration of place, its cultural influence and the power it has to weave and connect people, SUNNIE is a fascinating take on contemporary life in South-East Queensland.

This issue of SUNNIE continues the magazine’s quest to reveal the cultural wonder of Brisbane by exploring the stories of artists whose work sparks sensory memories, from internationally recognised musician Kate Miller-Heidke to composer Lawrence English and the experimental collective known as Harrigan’s Lane.

Brisbane’s visual landscape is also highlighted through a hearty conversation with painter Stephen Nothling, an exploration of City Architect, James Birrell’s life and a dive into the creative culture that defines Gadens.

Community also defines place, which is a value that SUNNIE discovered that producer, Queenie Pelesa, and the team behind Queensland College of Art’s (QCA) acclaimed Bachelor of Contemporary Australian Indigenous Art (CAIA) program, carry into all they create.

Available now, SUNNIE champions the rich talent pool of Brisbane writers, photographers, authors, artists and designers.

MoB Director/CEO, Renai Grace, said this third edition of SUNNIE offers its readers an insight into the city’s key cultural leaders.

“Our city is built on the shoulders of its community, including cultural giants with vision to facilitate change,” she said.

“This issue of SUNNIE looks as what inspires them and draws them to our city, while exploring the intrinsic link between nature, culture and belonging.”

SUNNIE is a beautifully crafted time capsule of the worlds of art, culture, history and ideas right now, set within 90 luxurious pages showcasing the range of talented Queensland creatives.

SUNNIE is published in Brisbane, Australia, on the traditional lands of the Yuggera, Turrbal, Yuggarrapul, Jinabara, Quandamooka and neighbouring clan groups. We pay our respect to their ancestors and elders—past, present, and future.

SUNNIE is available to purchase from the MoB Shop / Cost: $20
