Found Festival 17-25 May Abbotsford Convent Found Festival is kicking off with a bang. KINK! at the Shadow Electric Saturday night, the line up is definitely worth putting pants on for, even if its just so you can take them off again in excitement! The party starts at 6pm and features the amazingness of Circle Twerk, the Rebelles and Dj miss Goldie to name a few.
Featuring more than 100 performers, artists, speakers and makers over nine days, Found is conceived by artist Kirsty Hulm and produced alongside along festival partners Cherchez La Femme, Valhalla Social Cinema, Laneway Learning, Four and a Half Walls, Petty Intrigues and the Melbourne Buddhist Centre.
Central to the festival is an outstanding group exhibition with twenty internationally and locally renowned female artists, including Jennifer Burchill, Cate Considine, Lou Hubbard, Dr Catherine Bell, Laura Delaney and Alanna Lorenzon. Running for the duration of the festival in the Magdalen Laundries part of the Convent, the exhibition is a provocative and positive response to the history of this beautiful and haunting exhibition space.
