The Big Reach 2022

Thursday 26 May – Friday 27 May 2022 | QUT Gardens Theatre – 2 George Street, Brisbane City, QLD 4000


The Big Reach is two days of creative engagements, in-depth conversations, sideshows and workshops, reimagining the future of mental health and emotional wellbeing through a creative lens. The Big Reach is designed for anyone interested in arts, mental health, trauma, suicide prevention and general wellbeing from a lived experience, creative or professional point of view.


This experience-focused event is intended to be inspiring, stimulating, uplifting, deep, challenging, practical and, at the same time, enjoyable. The format offers participants the chance to engage with ground-breaking arts practice, to share expertise and insights through curated conversations, and to establish new connections and collaborations.


The Big Reach is Brisbane’s live, intensive two-day feature as part of The Big Anxiety 2022, welcoming anyone who would like to be part of the conversation. For further information visit
