About the Brisbane Crew

In every successful movement you need a critical mass. YFM Brisbane is the closest thing to the Youth Food Movement Australia’s ‘first follower’ (seen the TED talk?) – the group that turned a lone nut (Sydney) into a leader. And as we all now know (seriously, watch the video), the first follower is the most underrated form of leadership.

Launched onto the Brissy food scene in 2014, the Brisbane team is headed up by a crew of young Brisbanians who saw an idea and ran with it. With a swag of projects now under their belt, including CropFest - a celebration of ‘wonky’ produce in Australia - and the Reel Food Nights - a pumping short film and guest panel event – Brissy YFM brought a whole new series of events in 2015.

Stay in the loop for updates on events and projects from the Brisbane crew.
