South Bank Corporation has launched a new creative pop-up space in Brisbane, designed to offer visitors an engaging experience with events and activities.

Designed by Australian architecture and performance design firm Stukel Stone, the open air pavilion, Flowstate is located on a 3000-square-metre site in the South Bank precinct, famous for its awe-inspiring riverside parklands and home to Australia’s only inner-city man-made beach.

The precinct draws more than 11 million visitors each year.

The launch also saw South Bank Corporation unveiling a year-long program of free events showcasing artistic experiences spanning circus, dance, theatre, music and visual installations.

South Bank Corporation chair Dr Catherin Bull says the year-long multi-arts program of free creative experiences marks their contribution to the cultural activities happening across the state during the year of the Commonwealth Games. 

Flowstate consists of three distinct zones: a grassy relaxation zone, an immersive digital art installation JEM by design studio ENESS and an open-air performance pavilion.

South Bank Corporation CEO Bill Delves saysFlowstate captured the ever-changing nature of the South Bank precinct, continuing its 25-year legacy as a “people’s place”.
