Beautiful Garbage

Beautiful Garbage

Beautiful Garbage is a collaboration between Jez Franck and Nic Beck - an interactive space where you are invited to sit, create, chat, kiss, meet new friends and listen to the tinkling of chandeliers. Created using found and upcycled materials, the Beautiful Garbage garden will evolve over the course of the festival as a space for connection, creativity and relaxation. Beautiful Garbage invites you to rethink what is precious and what is throwaway. It invites you to find beauty in unexpected places and to ask questions - it is art in Queer form, full of surprises!

Jez Franck is a multidisciplinary visual artist, poet and facilitator living in Southampton, England. Their work is informed by ecological activism, magic and ritual, their identity as a nonbinary person and their experiences as an immigrant, neurodivergent person and outlier. They are interested in exploring the liminal spaces between objects, people, ideas and experiences. They have an interest in grassroots arts and art as a tool for activism and community building, believing that art has an important part to play in changing the world for the better.

Artist: Jez Franck

Campaigns Space

Our Queer Spirit Arising - Actions, Campaigns and Communities.

This twin tent space is curated by Miqx and Patrick Braithwaite, each seasoned queer activists. We aim to build a network, linking queer campaigns and issues in a mutually supportive and intersectional style. Our schedule for QSF highlights queer creativity and energy in these areas.

Meet here and share - first meet and greet at 6pm on Thursday. There will be a daily discussion session curated by the Campaigns team at MIDDAY, plus an open SPEAKER'S FORUM at 6pm each evening. Several workshops have been scheduled already - see below for the list, but please check the area schedule during the Festival, as some very interesting extra sessions will happen in this space.
