burrinja & vic health presents
Carabiner Bench (Nature found no fault with me) 2023, by Tay Haggarty and Collaborators
Sun 8 Oct @ 1pm | Carabiner Bench, Birdsland Reserve
Please join us to celebrate the launch of Carabiner Bench (Nature found no fault with me), a new piece of public art co-designed by Burrinja’s Queer Art Collective (QAC) and Lead Artist Tay Haggarty.
This artwork is an outcome of an 18-month project partnership between Burrinja and VicHealth and has been created in collaboration with a cohort of twelve 18-25 year old queer-identifying people. The artwork is the result of a 6-month long creative design and development process led by Tay Haggarty, reflecting on what it means to be a young queer person in 2023.
The event will feature live performances, speeches and the formal launch of this special artwork. Light catering will be provided.
Please join Burrinja’s Board Chair Prof. Elizabeth Dax AM, CEO Gareth Hart, QAC Facilitator Gulsen Ozer, Lead Artist Tay Haggarty, QAC Collaborators and distinguished guests.
