Announcement: Launching the BURN Arts Regional Network

If you didn’t know already, BURN Arts stands for Brisbane Urban and Regional Network for the Arts. After an illuminating Strategic Planning Session, and in order to live up to our name, we’ve opted to formalise this network with nominated Community Champions in the regions surrounding Brisbane.

Why do we need Community Champions? There are two main reasons. 1) Too often, those living outside of the urban centres feel isolated, and less able to contribute to the Modifyre community.  2) We’ve identified that the best way to sustainably grow the Modifyre/BURN Arts community and event is to better engage with our regional members, to assist them to create “hubs” of activity outside Brisbane. This means that we can avoid traditional models of advertising, and engage with potential participants in a more authentic and inclusive way that ensures our community retains its culture as we get bigger.

As of right now, we’d like to welcome Lea and Ravin as our first official Community Champions, who’ll be spearheading this initiative in the Northern Rivers area. Find out how to contact them, and the program coordinators from BURN Arts here.

BURN Arts, Inc and the Modifyre Community wish to acknowledge the Traditional Custodians of the Country
upon which Modifyre takes place, the Bigambul and Kambuwal Peoples.  


We also wish to acknowledge the Traditional Custodians of the Country upon which we live, learn and work, the Jagera and Turrbal Peoples.
We honour their Ancestors and pay our deepest respects to their Elders, past, present and emerging.  


We extend that respect to all First Nations People, for they hold the memories, the traditions, the culture and hopes of
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples across the nation. We honour and respect their continued cultural and spiritual relationship
to their Traditional Lands, Seas and Waters and recognise their unique and valuable contribution to society.  


Sovereignty was never ceded.
