open house & midsumma:

bent lines

On Wednesday 17 January, in partnership with Midsumma Festival, Open House hosted a walking tour of the city to explore how the built environment supports or isolates LGBTQIA+ communities.

 

 Open House Executive Director, Emma Telfer, co-hosted the event. I found it an illuminating experience in many ways, she says. The speakers were fantastic, and really helped us consider the city through their lens.”

 

Q-Studio Director Luca Lana took attendees to Melbourne City Baths to talk about the role of dense atmospheres in developing queers spaces.
