Consent Festival 2019 By Alexis Desaulniers Lea

On this page you will find 'Participate' facilities that are not a key focus at this time of the year. As the year progresses, these will be updated in readiness for the next festival, and placed back into the Participate menu.

Living in the Queerantine

We selected 10 artistic projects to receive up to $1,000 each to create a new piece of art that could engage through Midsumma’s online channels, and here are the exciting results of that initiative. 

Midsumma Futures

Midsumma Futures is a nine-month development and mentoring program for early-career artists and culture-makers, kicking off in October and running until May.

Midsumma Pathways

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

Food Vendor Expression of Interest

For your food truck to be involved with any of Midsumma Festival’s outdoor events, you must first fill out an Expression of Interest (EOI) form.
