Where
Customs House
Customs House
31 Alfred Street, Sydney NSW 2000

When

Saturday 18 February from 12pm to 2:30pm

Meet the queer, gender diverse and First Nations photographers and artists whose exciting, bold work is in the exhibition LIBERATE!

Visit Customs House with your friends and chosen family to see the photographs on show and join the panel discussions in the Level 2 Library Meeting Room, where you can hear stories about the history-making moments in the city and streets where they all took place.

In both panels, audiences can ask questions and we encourage you to spend time enjoying the exhibition before or after the program. There are also many quiet spaces where you can rest and reflect in the Customs House library.

Registrations are encouraged. Bring a friend!
