The GLAD Project

As part of the Arts Centre Melbourne Frank Van Straten Fellowship, awarded in 2022 to Angela Bailey, this first creative instalment of 'The GLAD project' acknowledges ‘Our GLAD’, the legendary musical theatre singer Gladys Moncrieff, her popularity and her ‘long term companion’ of 46 years Elsie Wilson. The broader fellowship explores queer histories within the Australian Performing Arts Collection.
Most often institutional narratives assume the hetero-normative and this project explores a queer narrative to these histories and and engages a broader accessibility for contemporary LGBTIQ+ communities.
