UPCOMING LOCAL EVENT - Body Positive Pool Party



Right to the City Brisbane, in conjunction with Greens Councillor Jonathan Sri, are throwing the ultimate end-of-summer party - a Body Positive Pool Party - with the added goal of raising funds for Warriors of the Aboriginal Resistance.

The Body Positive Pool party aims to take a space that is historically problematic for folks with bodies that sit outside of society's oppressive beauty standards and gender norms, and transform it into a space that embraces radical, body positivity. 

Join us for some prefigurative smashing of the white-supremacist-capitalist-cishet-patriarchy and just generally, one very fun night. 

The night will include: * Live music * Food * Thematically linked art * Stalls * SWIMMING  ++ much more

More details to come in the next few weeks. Find the event page here.

BURN Arts, Inc and the Modifyre Community wish to acknowledge the Traditional Custodians of the Country
upon which Modifyre takes place, the Bigambul and Kambuwal Peoples.  

 

We also wish to acknowledge the Traditional Custodians of the Country upon which we live, learn and work, the Jagera and Turrbal Peoples.
We honour their Ancestors and pay our deepest respects to their Elders, past, present and emerging.  

 

We extend that respect to all First Nations People, for they hold the memories, the traditions, the culture and hopes of
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples across the nation. We honour and respect their continued cultural and spiritual relationship
to their Traditional Lands, Seas and Waters and recognise their unique and valuable contribution to society.  

 

Sovereignty was never ceded.
