Emily will be on hand to help develop another diverse and engaging festival for 2020, as a triple-threat who has been involved with the festival since its inception as a performer, producer, and audience member.
“Each year MELT offers a wonderful collection of genres and stories, however I want to explore this further and invite those pushing the boundaries, exploring their artforms, telling stories that connect with our community and those offering a new perspective,” Emily says.
Expressions Of Interest are now open for the event.
“I am passionate about the local arts scene and in the past decade I have come across so many great queer artists. I would love to see an amazing collection of Queensland artists in the 2020 programme, but we also encourage those from interstate and overseas to apply.”
Brisbane Powerhouse Artistic Director Kris Stewart says the team is excited for the festival to continue to grow.
"MELT belongs authentically to the local community and is Brisbane Powerhouse’s most creatively diverse event, not only across genre, but featuring works on the largest scale through to small shows that are personal and honest, intended for an intimate environment," he says.
Head to the Brisbane Powerhouse website for Expressions Of Interest. They're open until midnight on 17 November.
