Annual Report: 2015

2016 Annual ReportThe 28th Midsumma Festival was true to its theme: Making Connections – connecting the diverse gender and sexuality "DGS" community with our partners, the media and the broader Victorian community.

The striking cover image was developed specifically in response to this theme by artist Santtu Mustonen who is a Finish illustrator based in New York. His work is inspired by organic patterns and movement.

A year of consolidation – Midsumma Festival 2015 focused on building on the success of 2014 with hugely attended major events, a diverse and innovative arts program and a record number of social and community events.

Engagement with the community continues to be a priority for Midsumma with a range of community consultation exercises conducted throughout the year to aid the development of our 2015 – 2020 Strategic Plan and festival programming.

Feedback from the community has been overwhelmingly positive with audiences continuing to grow.
