Fambo is a 1 day queer contemporary arts festival for LGBTQIA+ families with children aged 4-12.

The festival boasts entertainment from LGBTQIA+ artists who will be leading activities, workshops and performances, with the goal of celebrating the queer experience through creativity, play and inclusive participation. Artistic Director, Jenn Blake, is a queer identifying arts and cultural leader who has extensive experience working within the sector for a number of significant cultural institutions and festivals across Australia.

Fambo represents a new and long-overdue opportunity for queer families to engage in queer arts and culture.

The 2018 Fambo program will include the work of artists EO Gill, Kieran Butler, Nicole Barakat, Shahmen Suku and a kids party hosted by Heaps Gay.

Taking place on the first day of the spring school holidays, Fambo will showcase contemporary queer artists at Redfern’s 107 Projects for a day of fun. The intention behind every activity is to create “a safe space where gender is not binary or imposed, different bodies are not othered, and creative expression of self is encouraged, celebrated and safe.”

In a post-plebiscite world, bringing LGBTQIA+ families together has never been so important. Sure, the law for marriage equality was passed, but we can not, and should not, underestimate the destructive impact that the conversation has had on the community. 

This inspiring and uplifting event will be a heart-warming celebration of inclusivity, diversity and acceptance.
