Beginnings of my Architecture Fiction

The Queensland Folk Federation is a not-for-profit organisation with a vision of inclusive, creative and inspiring community growth of cultures and traditions. Over the years the organisation has become a symbol of environmental stability, de-urbanisation, diversity and human rights.

By 1993 the Folk Festival outgrew this site and organisers went in search of a new home.
Once degraded pastures, Woodfordia began in 1994 as a 500 acre landscaped cultural parkland located in the Sunshine Coast Hinterland on Jinibara Country. The commitment of the Queensland Folk Federation over the years to sustainability, de-urbanisation and environmental restoration of habitats, biodiversity and eco-systems has become integral to the festival. The organisers always had big dreams of what the folk festival could become and developed a 500 year plan for the site that assisted in Woodfordia's evolution and helped the site become what it is and stands for today.
