A Strange Space
Midsumma Festival and the Centre for Projection Art are joining forces for this free multi-arts fest which champions LGBTQIA+ artists and allies.
Across four nights this month, the newly revamped Collingwood Yards precinct will become the canvas for immersive multi-arts festival called A Strange Space. A collaboration between Midsumma Festival and the Centre for Projection Art, it'll present a dazzling showcase of projections, music, dance and performance — all courtesy of a sparkling lineup of LGBTQIA+ artists and allies.
Each night from Thursday, April 22–Sunday, April 25, the northside precinct will come alive with a diverse curation of projects celebrating artistic connections and human interactions. After the sun dips, you'll be treated to a broad-ranging program of works from the likes of Megan Beckwith, Leisa Prowd, Drew Pettifer, Wendy Yu, Jonathan Homsey, Wesley Dowling, Jenna Eriksen and more. Each artist will dive into the theme of 'a strange space' and the feels it encapsulates.
Sets by graduates of the Yarra Youth Services x Vinyl Vixens DJ program will soundtrack your after-dark art wanderings, while the bar slings beers and seltzers from Moon Dog. And if you're hungry, you'll find tasty fare from both the Hope Street Radio Restaurant and a lineup of food trucks.
