I am a keen traveller. Currently rediscovering my own backyard and the rest of Australia. I enjoy nature, history and the quirkiness of what the world has to offer.
Rainbow dance party & an exhibition all about identity
Night at the Museum: Youth Midsumma Party is back on for 2022 and it's a free LGBTQIA+ youth event brought to you by Minus 18. If you are aged between 12 to 19, then Night at the Museum: Youth Midsumma Party is on for you at the Immigration Museum, Melbourne on 29 January 2022.
As this is Midsumma, there will be lots of rainbow activities and pride activations to enjoy. This in-person dance party will be extra special. There will be LGBTQIA+ performers, competitions, snacks, glitter, PRIDE vibes and exclusive access to view the Immigration Museum's Becoming You exhibition after dark.
Night at the Museum: Youth Midsumma Party is part rainbow-filled dance party, part opportunity to see the incredible Immigration Museum's Becoming You exhibition. The exhibition is an exploration of identity, growing up, and experiences from all corners of the community. On the night, there will be a Glam Station for all your glitter needs, an art activation with Naarm-based artist, Abbey Rich, as well as all the usual Minus18 favourites: DJs, a dance floor, a Chill-Out Zone, competitions and so many opportunities to make new friends. So whether you are coming solo or with friends, you are sure to make new friends on the night.
Keep an eye on the Facebook and Instagram for more artist announcements and a full rundown of the night.
