Fambo is a new one day QUEER contemporary arts festival for all kinds of families.
Join us these school holidays for a day of exciting creative workshops and free art making activities that centre queer identities and celebrate queer arts and culture. Be welcomed into a queer art space to participate in experiences created by some of Australia’s most exciting LGBTIQA+ artists.
Become entwined in Nicole Barakat’s Wild Woven Colour Cave, a collaborative textile installation for all ages. For something really tasty book in to Shahmen Suku’s Banana Power workshop where Suku’s alter ego Rhada La Bia will perform and guide audiences in preparing the banana flowers while regaling stories from their ancestors. Put on your dance pants and learn all about Voguing and its important history with your hosts, Bhenji Ra & House of Slé, then try out your new moves at A Heaps Small Party by Heaps Gay. These are just some of the treats the day will offer. Head to the PROGRAM page to view all projects, read about the artists involved, and book your seats at the table. We can’t wait to see you there!
Fambo would like to acknowledge the traditional owners of the lands on which the Festival is held; the Gadigal people of the Eora Nation. Indigenous sovereignty was never ceded and resistance to ongoing colonisation continues. We pay our respects to Elders past, present and emerging.
Fambo is supported by the City of Sydney through its Culture and Creative Grants program and the Australian Government through the Australia Council, its arts funding and advisory body. Fambo is auspiced by 107 Projects and an initiative of their 107 Presents annual program.
