Feral Queer Camp Application

Applications for Feral Queer Camp 2023 have now closed.

Let’s go feral!

(Feral: ‘in a wild state, especially after escape from captivity or domestication’)

Be part of a new feral cohort who will consider: how we learn (from each other) about what makes performance queer; how we talk about queer performance; how we make performance; and, above all, how we might develop a network of queer thinkers.

Facilitated by a gaggle of feral queer academics assembled by camp captains Alyson Campbell and Steve Farrier, this is open to anyone in the community – enthusiasts, developing artists, practitioners: people who have not (yet) had access to, or have been let down by, or have chosen not to enter into, Higher Education but are hungry to encounter a utopian queer curriculum largely of their own devising. FQC is about seeing performance and thinking about it; we will have artist conversations and group discussions stemming from the performances in Midsumma festival. We might try some collaborative blogging...

In 2023 we are in partnership with Science Gallery for the first time as part of their Breaking the Binary exhibition.

Everyone 18+ is welcome to apply, regardless of experience and, believe us, if a feral queer camp appeals to you ... you are queer enough! We’d love to hear from our more senior members of the community and have a genuinely intergenerational conversation.
