About the Show
Community Consultation COVID-19 update
Midsumma Festival has a commitment to the safety and peace of mind of all its participants and staff.
In line with the latest advice from the Australian Federal and Victorian Governments on the prevention of the spread of COVID-19, and so our consultation can still go ahead, we will be moving our Community Consultation from an in-person session to an online interactive workshop.
To participate, you will need a device that is connected to the internet. If this is a problem do please let us know so we can discuss alternative ways you can participate with your ideas.
We will send out details over the next day or so on how you can log on and be a part of this session.
If you require the use of an Auslan interpreter, please let us know by emailing the below email address as this can still be arranged via the system we are planning to use.
We are very much looking forward to sharing this with you and hearing your views and exciting ideas
Until then stay safe and if you have any questions or queries, please do not hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
What is Melbourne Pride 2021
Did you know 2021 marks 40 years since the Victorian parliament decriminalised homosexuality in Victoria?
As the anniversary approaches, we take the opportunity to acknowledge the courage and resilience of our LGBTQIA community, with a once-off celebration currently in planning by the State Government. We are thrilled that Midsumma has been asked to facilitate community consultation to develop ideas for content for Melbourne Pride 2021 and help make sure this statewide celebration is one we all want to be a part of!
In a contemporary exploration of festivities, Melbourne Pride 2021 will embark on a journey of equality through inspirational arts, community involvement, food, and culture. With the streets of Fitzroy coming alive as we celebrate the history and build on the momentum for equality.
The celebration will be an inspirational show of Pride and a reflection of 40 years “road to Pride”.
Which gets us asking, what does Pride mean to you?
We want to hear from you
We have an opportunity for your voice to be heard and to shape Melbourne Pride 2021 into an event that is truly owned by our communities.
So we are holding community consultations and here is how to be involved:
Have your say by completing a 5 minute questionnaire. The survey covers topics such as; What Pride means to you? What events and activities would you like to see? And, we’d like to hear a bit about you and your communities.
