Please Read This If You Want To Propose a Workshop
Every year we receive countless requests from people wishing to give workshops at our festivals. We do not make a call for applications like other festivals. However, we do regularly organise Sexlabs and Kinklabs in cities around Australia, where you can come and pitch your workshop ideas to us and we’ll try them out with you. Our festivals are not simply organised, they are curated with a specific dramaturgy in mind which changes every year and with each edition. As a rule, the faculty only invites people to give workshops if they already know the presenter's work first hand and are convinced they have something special to offer within the overall framework of the festival each year.
Much more than workshop presenters, we are especially in need of people who will help us with organisation and publicity. If you'd like to join us, please fill out the Helper Application Form. If you do not know the director personally but would like to teach and/or perform at the festival in the future, feel free to introduce yourself to him at the festival, tell him about yourself and what you do.
We take a lot of pride in the quality of what we produce and really believe that we are the most intelligent, creative and exploratory sexuality school in Australia--in fact in the Southern Hemisphere. Our festival work has its roots in the Xplore Festival in Berlin with which we continue to have dialogue and exchange. Because quality and integrity are very important to us we have such a strict policy about who teaches and what is taught and performed.
