Hello Acro Australia!
For the 4th year running, Brisbane will open its doors to our extended Acro Family as we host the 14th Acro Exchange
The exchange is an opportunity for our greater community to come together for a full weekend of jamming and other special events.
— Plan —
Annual welcome Jam and Dinner at Kangaroo Point Cliffs 4pm https://goo.gl/maps/JieLixjKLuT2
A warm welcome to Brisbane with a potluck BBQ by the river at Kangaroo Point Cliffs where everyone contributes something to create shared dinner
Acro Sleepover (Location TBC) 9pm
A mass acro sleepover, could it get any better?! Anyone who has attended these in the past know how much fun it is, sleeping bags, acro flows, late night and early morning coffees. There will be bedding available but if you have your own, bring it along
Jam at Orleigh Park 11am https://goo.gl/maps/fHX2bxYf77r
Kicking off the first official Jam of the weekend we will meet by the river in West End.
Local markets take place jut around the corner in the morning and are highly recommended!
Renegade Show (Location TBC) 8pm
Following in the footsteps on the Melbourne community, we are creating a cabaret by the jammers, for the jammers. If you have a cool party trick, want to show off a new skill you just learned, do some contemporary dance, sing, tell a joke or have any act you want to share, we want it.
Jam at New Farm Park 11am https://goo.gl/maps/aWrjVZNwWBt
New Farm Park has slack line and aerial apparatus friendly trees so today will have a few more toys added into the mix ☺ Lets come together and continue to connect and play before saying goodbye to our interstate and international AcroJammers until the next Exchange!
“Acro-lympics” New Farm Park 3pm
Think handstand knockout, washing machine wars and team cheering. A special opportunity to playfully compete with all of the acro community from around Australia with prizes donated to the champions!

— What is an Exchange? —
As an AcroJam is “an afternoon in the park” an Exchange is “a weekend in the city”.
Jam organizers from each hosting city create the “time and the space” but its up to you to bring the magic!
Exchanges are a celebration of our local Jam culture at an epic new level. The same way many of us have forged strong connections in our local community an Exchange is a chance to forge these same connections to a whole new group of people in another city.
These events are completely non-commercial and people driven. They are not a workshop or a class, nor do they promote any external classes making profits, they are intended to be as low cost as possible and inclusive as possible. Some will chose to fly over and stay in a hotel, others will car pool and couch surf.
