Still Here Artist Talks

Six emerging creatives share their thoughts and experiences from the Still Here LGBTQIA+ Lab.

Still Here is a lab which amplifies the visibility of LGBTQIA+ artists in Western Australia, and offered developmental opportunities for six emerging practitioners. Participants were invited to experience and embody the practice of acclaimed transgender artist Cassils during their performance, exhibition and lecture at PICA during the Perth Festival. Through introspection and provocation, these lab participants have since been encouraged to create their own artistic responses, which will be discussed during these artist talks.

Featuring: Aisyah Aaqil Sumito, Ethan Matthew Blackburn, James McMillan, Noemie Huttner-Koros, Patrick Gunasekera, and Samantha Nerida.


When: Wednesday 17 April, 5.30pm - 6.30pm
Where: Education Room, PICA
