QJCCI Cocktail Reception - Shinnenkai 新年会: February 13, 2019
Happy New Year 2019 (明けましておめでとうございます) from the Queensland Japan Chamber of Commerce & Industry!
Join the QJCCI in our celebration of 2019, Japan's Year of the Boar, with our special “Shinnenkai” (new year gathering) networking event on Wednesday, 13th February 2019, at the Brisbane Club, featuring a welcome address from our special guest Mr Kazunari Takanka, Consul-General of Japan, Brisbane.
In Japan, shinnenkai have been held since the 15th century to celebrate the new year and toast each other’s good health and prosperity. The QJCCI wishes to follow this tradition with an event aimed at helping you to meet other members and new contacts in a friendly environment.
Whether you love networking or hate it, this event will provide structured activities to ensure you make the most of the evening. Remember that networking is an investment in the future aimed at building relationships, and not simply a scramble for the most business cards.
So please come along, meet some old and new friends, and help us celebrate the Year of the Monkey together.
When: Wednesday 13 February 2019 from 5.30pm to 7.30pm
Where: Brisbane Club, 241 Adelaide Street, Brisbane

9th Asia Pacific Triennial of Contemporary Art (APT9), QAGOMA, Brisbane - November 24, 2018 - April 28, 2019
The hugely ambitious APT series returns to QJCCI member QAGOMA this summer, bringing significant art from across the Asia Pacific to Brisbane. Overflowing with colour and life, this free contemporary art exhibition presents a unique mix of creativity and cross-cultural insight.
Featuring more than 80 artists and groups from over 30 countries, APT9 challenges conventional definitions of contemporary art by asking us to consider its relationship to shifting social structures across the region. Explore a number of never-before-seen installations, paintings, sculptures, photographs and video from emerging and senior artists, together with leading works from Indigenous communities and artists.
