Midsumma Pathways at Melbourne Fringe Festival

We're thrilled to see that several of our 2022-23 Midsumma Pathways participants, and previous alumni of the program, are taking part in the 2022 Melbourne Fringe Festival.

Midsumma Pathways is a nine-month mentorship and workshop program for LGBTQIA+ artists with disability. The Pathways program provides a queer context for fourteen LGBTQIA+ emerging artists with disability to develop their artistic practices. It includes access to professional mentoring, group workshops and contact with arts industry representatives. 

Melbourne Fringe Festival includes 450+ events presented annually by Melbourne’s emerging and independent artistic talent across every possible artform, in-theatre experiences sit alongside digital art, live streams and outdoor events made by big names, new names and everyday citizens scratching their creative itches.
