MELT 2017: A Celebration of Queer Arts and Culture

Presented by Brisbane Powerhouse

MELT is an invitation to celebrate Brisbane’s wonderfully diverse queer communities.

It’s a special time to reflect on the struggles we face and the achievements we have won together. And it’s a time to party!

Brisbane’s LGBTI+ voice is loud and clear, bursting with pride, humour, humanity, and rebellion. The community is bounding towards equality in many vital aspects of life and MELT is a vehicle for these leaps.

The invitation is extended to citizens of all genders, sexual orientations, ages, ethnicities, abilities and artistic interests. The celebration is one of love.

Brisbane Powerhouse thanks our MELT 2017 Partners HIV FoundationHerbert Smith Freehills, Queensland Government, The Johnson hotel (Art Series Hotel Group), and JCDecaux
