Celebrating the best of Brisbane’s emerging designers, artists, creative entrepreneurs, musicians, foodies and collectors, The Collective Markets are ideal for finding a unique gift, marvelling at Brisbane’s local talent or simply strolling and enjoying the atmosphere.

The centerpiece of Flowstate is the art installation, Jem, created by Australian design studio ENESS. An interactive cage-style structure, Jem responds to people with sounds and light as they move around the steel skeleton.
Locals and visitors are invited to relax, to eat, to marvel at one of Queensland’s most compelling artworks, to witness new performance work in development, engage in workshops, and listen to fascinating discussions and cool beats all while reveling in the contemporary design.

All performances are set among towering, leafy trees and guaranteed chill vibes, perfect for catching up with friends or enjoying a solo outing. Food is also on the menu – bring along your favourite picnic snacks or grab a bite to eat from one of the on-site food vendors.
