KALEIDOSCOPE TOWERS

QWC occupied both physical and cyber spaces throughout the festival via durational and multi-disciplinary performances correlating with their work as a rapid response community care mechanism.

For 4 days the QWC collective gathered in a offsite physical location that symbolised the space they have built with community, Queer family and other advocates for change/healing. Like a bat phone for any marginalized voice connected to the LGBTQIA+ community. It was a chance to connect with other platforms, projects and people who are creating healing in different ways. Kaleidoscope Towers was a cyberspace as well as a metaphysical space where marginalized voices, stories, expressions and needs are held up.

A message from QWC: We have all been thrown into a whirlpool of dramatic and fast changes and structures falling around us. The ideas of Queerness or weirdness are changing and the oppresssed are rising up- speaking up – demanding to be part of the decisions that have been taken off us.

We are connected globally in a way we never have been, the inequality is too stark and loud to be ignored. The change is here and the uprising is nothing like we thought it might be, the battlegrounds and stations of transformation are illusive and often hidden. Hundreds of bodies of murdered First Nations children in so called Canada have surfaced, with them a call from Mother Earth herself to face and heal the past. The maternal care giver within us all. Stories about oppression in patriarchal industries such as Music, Film, TV and Olympic level sport, are being exposed and covered by mainstream media. People are starting to tell their truths and share the lived experiences that have hurt them for lifetimes…generations for some. This is a terrifying but incredible turning point in our shared story.

At the moment it feels chaotic and overwhelming….we really felt that effect as individual marginalized people living through the beginning of this plague on humanity. It feels like all the colors of the spectrum have become more saturated and complex…some even multiplying as they refract in the new threads of light this global crisis has shed.
