We are building a table. It’s a long table. We want you to take a seat.
Long Table is an opportunity for communities to gather and connect with Q Theatre in an entirely new way. Across Autumn 2019 artists Vonne Patiag, Bhenji Ra and Venessa Possum with assistant curator Nathan Sentance will each curate a month of activity around the table.

Keep an eye out for panels, parties, workshops, catch ups, cups of tea and a whole heap of ‘come catch us at The Joan.’ It’s fun, it’s fresh, it’s fearless.
Each month will culminate in a final night-time gathering filled with art, food and drink. The doors are open, the tickets are free, all that’s left is to RSVP.
Long Table is curated by leaders from our local First Nations, CALD & LGBTQI+ communities. This project is made possible thanks to the support of Create NSW and the Western Sydney Strategic Opportunities Fund.
