On Friday 18 August 2017 Brisbane’s Cultural Forecourt in South Bank Parklands will come alive with Revive. Sellers from across Brisbane will be coming together in celebration of second-hand fashion.

This event celebrates second-hand fashion as a way to avoid the amount of waste sent to landfill. Those who make it to the event can learn how buying second-hand fashion is a fun and affordable way to help keep Brisbane clean, green and sustainable.
