The Abbotsford Convent partners with other arts and cultural organisations, festivals and events to develop artistic practice, diversify our public programs, attract diverse audiences and create new conversations and thought-provoking experiences for everyone to enjoy at the Convent.
The Convent is proud to co-present with Midsumma Festival – Victoria’s premier queer arts and cultural Festival, for and by LGBTQIA+ communities. The Convent prides itself on being a safe, inclusive, vibrant and welcoming community hub that supports diverse voices, practices and forms of expression.
In 2019, we are proud to be home to three exciting Midsumma projects:
- 'Company Ink' with queer Convent artist Eureka.
- 'Orpheus' by Forest Collective.
- Queer Economies a community-led open call exhibition at St Heliers Street Gallery.
To keep abreast of more than 1,000 arts and cultural events held at the Convent each year, sign up to our monthly e-news, The Humbug.
