campOUT will amplify Blak queer perspectives in a one-night extravaganza. Join us to launch the solo exhibition insideOUT by Peter Waples-Crowe at the Koorie Heritage Trust while acknowledging the ongoing presence of LGBTQIA+ First Nations people and celebrate the many contributions the community has made through the arts.

Highlights include an in-gallery performance by the compelling musical force that is Mojo Juju, DJ set by the inimitable SojuGang and a showcase of fashion collection MIRRIGANG, created by Peter in collaboration with Vincent LI.

For the duration of YIRRAMBOI Festival and beyond, Peter Waples-Crowe will transform the Koorie Heritage Trust into a Blak queer hub to bring stories from the outside, in. campOUT is the Blak queer celebration this city deserves.

Get glam and set up camp for a moment in this Blak-queer-centric space.
