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 2018, we are proud to be home to three exciting Midsumma projects.
From photography, visual art and sculpture, to an in-depth discussion about making queer art, these events are sure to excite and inform, offering great arts experiences and new perspectives from local, national and international queer arts leaders:
We are also the proud host of the Midsumma Futures workshop in January 2018.
The Midsumma Futures workshop aligns with the Convent’s core values – supporting independent artists and early-career culture makers with opportunities to deepen their practice with like-minded peers.
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.
