Open Season marks the project’s first ever Brisbane outing - so strap yourself in for a hilarious night of Microsoft PPT.

Queer artists from across Brisbane are invited to explore and share an idea, current obsession, or ongoing fascination using that most staid and ubiquitous of programming tools. 

It’s a bunch of queers deep diving into highly niche content in a very gay way, reclaiming and queering the corporate presentation mode created by our straight capitalist overlords. 

Creators Xanthe Dobbie and Harriet Gillies play host to a night of surprising stories, secret passions and starwipes; commissioning artists to create a new 10-minute performance lecture about absolutely anything – the only rules are they have to be queer af, and they have to use Microsoft PowerPoint.

Come together and revel in this new strangeness with a digital tool from a simpler time.

Full line-up of speakers and artists announced soon!


  • Co-Creators – Harriet Gillies, Xanthe Dobbie & Thom Smyth
