Midsumma Festival is just around the corner!
Midsumma is a cultural festival that celebrates queer artists, culture makers, social transformers and advocates.
Brimbank has collaborated with other western region councils to bring you Midsumma Westside, the best LGBTQIA+ events from Melbourne’s west.
You can join in the Midsumma festival fun in Brimbank this year with four key events:
- Fabulous and Impossible Exhibition by Tom Christophersen: The Bowery gallery presents ‘Fabulous & Impossible – The Cult of Leigh Bowery’, an exhibition running from 28 January – 19 March featuring the visual art of Sydney-based queer artist and multidisciplinary pistol-whip Tom Christophersen. ‘Fabulous & Impossible – The Cult of Leigh Bowery’ is for lovers of meticulously made things which glory in the uncomfortable and underground, the shock of the spectacle, and the delicious way the queer community creates art on their own terms from their own lived experiences.
- Pride Pool Party: Brimbank City Council, in collaboration with Bulldog Pride, are hosting an LGBTIQA+ inclusive pride pool party at Sunshine Leisure Centre to celebrate the Midsumma Festival. Featuring world renowned Melbourne DJ MzRizk, join us for a day of good vibes and fun in the sunshine on 30 January at an inclusive event for all people and all kinds of bodies.
- Entangled by Genevieve Collier: Council proudly presents Genevieve Collier’s art exhibition running from 4 February – 17 March at Hunt Club. This installation is for people whose answers often spurn more questions, who believe in the power of art. It explores forgotten people from the past and the potential of an unknown future.
