Fantastic shows and performances are one part of MELT. Vibrant, diverse art is another. Simply take a look at the Brisbane Powerhouse's walls, and you'll understand, with the venue decking out its foyers with a host of MELT creativity.

No fewer than six works and exhibitions are on display until Sunday, July 7. As you'd expect, it's an inclusive and lively bunch. You'll spot the first, Tim Glorious' Tethered Together, as you approach the venue, because you can't miss this multi-coloured projection — and that's just the starting point. From there, the annual MELT Portrait Prize celebrates LGBTIQ+ heroes, Dr Heather Faulkner's A Matter of Time looks into the lesbian experience during Queensland's more conservative days, and Matthew Taylor Thomas' Stygian Stones examines intolerance by taking inspiration from Greek mythology. There's also Talking Can Make Things Better, which focuses on conversations to reduce self-harm and suicide, plus Sophie Reid-Singer's Brood, which uses video, satire and cats to comment on the way society treats people with disabilities.
