Brisbane favourites, Polytoxic, have collaborated with local creative minds to bring you a time capsule of ‘now’.

From visual artists, to dancers, to writers, theatre makers and musicians, more than 100 local artists contributed to this work, sending their reflections, celebrations, and memories of life under lockdown.

These stories, remixed with breathtaking aerials, soundscape and large-scale visuals, will be projected on the walls of Brisbane Powerhouse.

Snapshot is a homage to the arts community and a gift to all.
