WHERE IS MODIFYRE?

THE EVENT

For its first year the Modifyre event was hosted by the Famunity at their beautiful home in the Gold Coast Hinterland.

We wish to honour the Traditional Owners of the Numinbah Valley, the Yugambeh People, and recognize them as custodians of this land. We pay our respects to their elders – past, present and emerging – and acknowledge the important role Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people continue to play within the community. Sovereignty was never ceded.

Next we headed west to Yarramalong Campground in the Fassifern Valley. Nestled among beautiful bushland at the base of Mt Edwards, this was the location of our Pre-Conception gathering back in 2014 and so brought a sense of homecoming.

We wish to honour the Traditional Owners of the Fassifern Valley, the Ugarapul People, and recognize them as custodians of this land. We pay our respects to their elders – past, present and emerging – and acknowledge the important role Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people continue to play within the community. Sovereignty was never ceded.

HOMEWARD BOUND

Now in our third year, we have a very special new site that we simply can't wait to share with you. Located 3.5hrs southwest of Brisbane, in Goondiwindi shire, we have finally found a place to call home. In this new home we will have the space to flourish like never before, whilst staying true to our community roots. 

As Modifyre's creative identity becomes ever bigger, ever brighter, ever more inspiring, so too grows the weight of our civic responsibility. We are committed to meaningful engagement with the regional community that hosts us, during the event and year-round. Keep an eye on the facebook page for updates! 

YEAR-ROUND

Modifyre does not just exist for the one week of the event. It is a year-round community of artists and activists, striving to make cities that are more open, inclusive, and innovative.

When we're not on site, we can be found plotting, scheming, planning and creating large-scale art in warehouses and under homes all over Brisbane, the Gold Coast, Northern Rivers and beyond. Come visit us at the awesome HSBNE (Hackerspace Brisbane), or find out what we're up to next on the Modifyre Community facebook page.
