A Brave(R) Space

Event: A Beat to Hold Back the Dawn

Produced and presented by Midsumma Festival

A Brave(R) Space is an artistic exploration of intersectional LGBTQIA+ identity(s) involving the creation of brave new contemporary works, across various art forms. For years Midsumma has explored the notion of cultural safety with artistic communities, against a backdrop of increasing intersectional tensions. Now is the time for bravery; the championing of our diverse cultural warriors as we come together as artists, audiences and communities to be the change-makers for our future. A Brave(R) Space is a call to arms to be courageous in the development of new contemporary arts practises, pushing creative boundaries in the pursuit of a queer aesthetic unique to our region of the world.

A Brave(R) Space, along with Queer PHOTO, is part of the 2024 Midsumma Presents program.
