Films and performances made by and with young trans and gender non-conforming people in Melbourne as a response to the anxieties they faced in public spaces.
Conceived in 2018 and concluding in 2021, eight diverse short films were produced in a partnership between St Martins, one of Australia’s leading arts companies, working with children and teenagers, and Minus18 Australia’s peak youth LGBTIQ+ advocacy body.
The films were scripted, devised and realised by St Martins in collaboration with the cohort of youth from Minus18 and a team of professional trans and cis artists. In 2020 Escape Velocity was nominated for a GLOBE Community Award in the ‘Outstanding Advocacy’ category.
At this special one-off event, all eight short films will be screened followed by a panel discussion with some of the participants.
