Ah yes, ~art~
Do you feel a bit lost and wish you had the right terminology for it? Want to learn how to appreciate it better?
Please join us for a fabulous evening soiree where we will experience the private art collection at Gadens, enjoy drinks and canapés, as well as hear from two speakers who brilliantly balance the worlds of business and art. We will learn more about the Brisbane art scene and how understanding the arts can actually be valuable for your professional development.
You’ll find it doesn’t have to be too complicated!
Joining us are our guest speakers:
