For Artists, Producers and Promoters
WorldPride Arts and Pride Amplified
Sydney WorldPride is excited to work with artists, producers, companies and promoters to create a compelling, bold and adventurous festival program that reflects the diversity of the LGBTQIA+ community and encourages participation in LGBTQIA+ arts and cultural events.
The festival will include performance, literature, digital art, visual arts, public art, food, fashion, film, parties, music, history, community events and other arts and cultural experiences that aim to represent all aspects of our LGBTQIA+ communities including First Nations and the Asian Pacific perspectives.
There are two program streams:
WorldPride Arts, which is a full arts and culture program curated by our Creative Directors Ben Graetz, Daniel Clarke and a team of Curatorial Associates. You can now browse the full WorldPride Arts program – click here.
We have prioritised projects that engage with artists, project participants or audience members from communities who have often been under-represented in LGBTQIA+ arts and cultural festivals including: First Nations People’s; Culturally and Linguistically Diverse people; People with disability and/or people who are d/Deaf; Transgender and Gender Diverse people; People with Intersex variations; Women; Elders/Seniors; and Youth.
Pride Amplified is an open access program, inviting LGBTQIA+ events to join the WorldPride Festival. From parties and experiences to theatre, drag shows and community gatherings, free and paid events of any size and type can apply to be part of the Pride Amplified program.
This is an opportunity to show the world what we have to offer and the diversity of LGBTQIA+ brilliance in Australia.
The approval process will be straightforward; you will demonstrate your event has a genuine connection to the LGBTQIA+ community, and meets some simple criteria (eg the event occurs during WorldPride). Successful applicants to Pride Amplified will be required to pay a registration fee and will be featured on the website and included in the printed program.
Applications are now open. Go to our Pride Amplified page to read more and apply.
