The first of its kind, offering children and families the opportunity to enjoy queer contemporary arts and culture; Fambo will include workshops, activities, and performances lead by LGBTQIA+ artists.
Some highlights of the Fambo experience that attendees can look forward to includes a cooking demonstration that delves into cultural identity and gender, lead by Shahmen Suku's alter ego and drag persona. Nicole Barakat will also be leading a collaborative installation using everyday household materials.
Throughout the day, 'Black Divaz' documentary star and Inaugural Miss First Nations Winner, Josie Baker, will engage in story telling sessions. To conclude Fambo, Heaps Gay will host a two hour dance event to celebrate queer music.
“There is so much to enjoy and celebrate about the LGBTQIA+ experience and very little opportunity for children and families to connect and participate together in experiences which ultimately validate our identity and strengthen our sense of belonging,” Artistic Director Jenn Blake says.
“It is my hope that Fambo creates a space in which all children and families feel welcome to be their authentic selves and feel inspired and uplifted by some of Australia’s most exciting contemporary queer artists.”
