We also celebrate and welcome our Indigenous Program recipient, Ikuntji Artists, who showcases Aboriginal art in forms such as textiles, jewellery, fashion collections and more. Be sure to visit their stall to learn more about the incredible work of this member-based, not-for-profit Aboriginal art centre.
Food & Drink:
We’re stoked to welcome the Range Brewing crew, who will serve up beers at the FK Bar alongside Minimum Wines and their range of organic, vegan wines. There are heaps of tasty eats to choose from, including fresh treats from Baked by M&G, burgers on the bus with Bill’s Burgers on the big bus or a Bánh Mì by Bánhs On Wheels. You’ll also find something to take home for Dad from Bald Rock Beef Jerky, Eat For You and Ventura Brewing, just to name a few!
Peppermint x Finders Keepers:
The wonderful team from Peppermint Magazine are back on board as our 2022 media partner! We’re big fans of this locally made mag choc-full of sustainability gems, brands doing good and free sewing patterns. We think you’ll love them, too and for your chance to WIN one of 5 annual subscriptions, just buy an online ticket to Finders Keepers Brisbane, and you’ll go in the running! Come along and say g’day to their wonderful team in person, snap a selfie and flip through their mags in the Read & Refresh Lounge. They will be joined by Indigenous sustainable fibre artist Norton Fredericks, spinning yarn on his spinning wheel with his label Retritus.
