High-tech art changes colour of Brisbane skyline

ONE of the highlights of the G20 Cultural Celebrations will be the ability of children both young and old to add their splash of colour to the city skyline.

The high-tech Colour Me Brisbane initiative will allow people to change the colours of the city's 32 most iconic buildings and signature landmarks with the touch of a button.

It is one of many initiatives and events planned in the lead up to next month's world leader's summit.

Queensland Arts Minister Ian Walker, talking exclusively to APN Newsdesk, urged people from regional areas to visit the city and immerse themselves in world-class music, food, arts and cultural events.

He said it was a chance for people from across the state to experience the best Queensland had to offer.

"The G20 Cultural Celebrations will showcase our amazing state not just to the international media and global leaders, but also to the people of Queensland and Australia," he said.

"Everything on offer is definitely worth a trip to see.

"The thing about this celebration is it is an opportunity to put the state on every television screen across the world."

Mr Walker said Queensland had such a diverse culture and people from regional Queensland were an essential part of that fabric.

He said another cultural highlight was Queensland Ballet's Coppelia performance at Riverstage.

"The performance, the first of its kind to be staged outdoors in two decades, will bring together our beautiful outdoor lifestyle and impressive talent," he said.

"Regional families are encouraged to come to Brisbane, bring a blanket to the gardens and enjoy a fresh take on a timeless classic."
