I acknowledge the traditional custodians of this land, the land I live, work and create upon. I am grateful for the connections I have had with country and its peoples. I feel fortunate to be able to create new work, collaborate and engage with others on this land. I acknowledge elders past, present and emerging and value the knowledge carried with them.

GET F*NKED

Girl, this is not a party you wanna rock up late for! Get F*NKED is a one night only art-happening for women (trans, cis and non-binary). It is the brain child of first time party producers Alchemistudio. Creating a space for women away from the male gaze, tipping social boundaries and expectations on its head. This accessible happening invites you into an electrically charged space where you can basically do whatever you want – we’ll have music, food, installation art, live performance, quiet corners for anti-partiers, a bar, a disco ball if you’re lucky, a petting zoo… (actually, probably not a petting zoo).

A team of female-identifying and non-binary artists will elevate the vibe with DJ beats, performance art, projection, and an array of unapologetic costumes and design. Our line up includes: Katie Sfetkidis, Evelyn Beissel, Zoe Wong, Wild Tongue (Azja Kulpinska and Timmah Ball), Miss Cairo, New Change, DJ Abyss, Erica Schreiner, Freya McGrath, Elsie and The Vibe, Ilana Charnelle

Join us for a Fierce, Fevered, and Effing-unbelievable Party. Wear what you want, dance how you choose. Let’s Get F*NKD.

Presented as part of Critical Mass and Melbourne Fringe Festival
