Spend an evening in our indulgent queer salon at NAS, surrounded by a family of queer orators who will delight you with short readings from their most treasured pieces of queer literature and words that changed their life.

Hear from our courageous 78ers and a host of queer celebrities, identities, advocates, heroes, young voices and our newest talents. Sip champagne and enjoy an array of sweet and savoury delights as we turn pages and invoke the literary history of queer storytelling. Join us in celebrating words that matter.

Add to your salon experience with our Moonlite pop-up bar and Print with Pride pop-up.

Artist line-up: Dennis Altman, William Yang, Tommy Murphy, Alana Valentine, Bill (William) Bowtell, Vicki Harding, Nana Miss Koori, Mama Alto,and more to be announced soon.

Print with Pride pop-up. Free, as part of the Salon.

Screenprinting has been used as a tool of queer rebellion since the early days of LGBTQIA+ liberation. Words matter. Learn about this medium through a printing pop-up led by third-year printmaking students at the National Art School. Bring old clothing or paper to upcycle with a protest print or print on our supplied paper for some take-home art. By donation.
