    Event description

    Club Silly would like to acknowledge the Whadjuk People of the Noongar Nation as the Traditional Custodians of the Land on which this party is organised and held upon. We pay our respect to Elders past and present; and acknowledge the strength, storytelling and art of Sistergirls, Brotherboys and queer mob, that has paved the way for little queer collectives like us to exist. We are grateful to be able to share this creative space, move our bodies and play together on what always was and always will be, Aboriginal Land. 

    We would also like to express gratitude for the privilege to be able to create a space of lightness while so much in the world feels dark right now. Our hope and intention is for this to be a place of collective resistance and togetherness as much as it is a place to have fun.

    7PM @ THE BIRD COURTYARD

    OKKK we know what you're thinking… What is a pre-party and why is it at the same venue?

    Think about this pre-party like a wholesome queer crafternoon with friends. Expect craft supplies, (optional) ice breaker activities, sensory toys and chill music to ease you into the night. Perfect if you are flying solo and want to meet new peeps, prefer the more chill part of a night out, or need a little extra time to get comfy in a space.
