High queer, high camp, Hi-Vis - a sound installation on the streets and in your ears.

Milk Presents 

Presented in Partnership with Curious Arts

Part of Out On The Toon

Time and Location  Make A Declaration 

Part performance, part installation, Hi-Vis is landing on the streets of Newcastle. High queer, high camp, high volume - we invite members of the LGBTQIA+ community to anonymously record celebratory declarations of queerness and have these broadcast via Milk’s loud and proud hailer at Grey's Monument in Newcastle City Centre.

The pandemic has forced LGBTQIA+ spaces to close and Pride events to cancel, leaving the community isolated from each other. With many missing their queer fam Hi-Vis is an opportunity to shout out to Newcastle's LGBTQIA+ community and also be heard by those who haven’t stopped to listen before.

Supported by Comic Relief's LGBTQ+ COVID-19 Recovery Fund, in partnership with METRO Charity, Yorkshire MESMAC and Birmingham LGBT. With playful comms support from Coney. 

Time and Location  

Fri 16 Apr, 11am - 6pm - Grey's Monument 
Sat 17 Apr, 10am - 2pm - Grey's Monument
