At Burrinja we are creating a suite of monthly safe space art and social gathering events created for and with young queer identifying people aged 18-25. The events are all designed to be a place to gather with peers, learn and participate in diverse creative practices and connect to other queer creatives and networks. If you are interested in joining the fun you can come to one, or as many of the events as you like. We also 100% welcome input and ideas from young queer people about the events we create.

Queer Art Collective (QAC) is…

- About looking at life and art from queer perspectives. 

- An opportunity to see art together and make art together.

- A peer-to-peer queer social network where you can make things, share food and share time together.

- A place where you don’t have to be a creative (although you may be). It’s okay just to like art.

- Facilitated by queer people for queer community.

The Queer Art Collective (QAC) events are specifically designed to be fun, safe and inclusive held space with great respect for the diverse lived experiences of LGBTQI+ and BIPOC communities. 

We begin with an art event:
