Creative Brisbane: Modern Australian Design MAD Weekend

Since starting this blog, I have met some amazing, creative and passionate people!

Chris and Susan are two such people.

They are major fans of Mid Century design and work tirelessly bringing awareness and celebrating this era of style.

Not only do they have an amazing home (see the full tour here) that they have lovingly restored, they have also published magazines and a book on Australian Mid Century design and they also open their home up for all sorts of events.

This year, they are hosting the MAD weekend, a series of activities celebrating Mid Century design, with live performances, film and an interiors tours.

For more information and bookings, head over to their site Australian Modern.

Later in the year, Chris and Susan are opening up their home again for Tim Ross to perform his highly acclaimed Man About the House comedy night with musician Kit Warhurst.

This show will be held in conjunction with the upcoming Hot Modernism exhibit, unearthing Queensland’s Mid Century architecture movement between 1945 – 1975.
