The team behind Queensland’s most exciting celebration of LGBTIQ+ arts and culture are excited to announce the return of MELT: Festival of Queer Arts and Culture and the annual MELT Portrait Prize in 2021. Shining the spotlight on LGBTIQ+ culture, the 12-day festival will celebrate visibility and inclusivity among the community when it takes over Brisbane Powerhouse. The annual MELT Portrait Prize gives visual artists the creative license to celebrate heroes in the LGBTIQ+ community. Guest Director James Lees, who previously programmed MELT in 2015, 2017 and 2018, will again spearhead a diverse and engaging festival experience in 2021.
