A mainstay on the Brisbane art scene and feature of Queensland Mental Health Week, the Recovered Futures Art Exhibition provides a powerful platform for artists with lived mental health experience to showcase and sell their artwork. In 2023, the event was a resounding success! Showcasing 271 artworks by 169 artists, the exhibition attracted over 13,250 visitors and achieved over $77,000 in artwork sales, the highest in its 32-year history. We look forward to bringing you a bigger and better event in 2024!
Proudly hosted by RFQ
