Common Ground: a community curated meetup

Common Ground – a global meet up celebrating The Commons on Flickr will be held at the State Library of Queensland. This event will also be hosted, around the globe, by other members of The Commons.

The event in Brisbane will consist of a large projection onto the screen in the State Library’s stunning Queensland Terrace using a slideshow of content from The Commons on Flickr participating institutions that is curated by its community of users – making the Flickr Commons go ‘live’ through a connected slideshow. This special event will include images from Picture Queensland – the State Library of Queensland’s image library.

Light refreshments will be served.
