Events and Performances

Who loves a red carpet event and belly dance shows? We certainly do! So we have scheduled 3 special events and performances for #bellycon23!
Performer applications are now open for the Friday and Saturday night performance events.

Welcome Event and Keynote Presentation

Thursday July 6th, 7pm,
Welcome To Brunswick, 408 Sydney Rd Brunswick
Walk the red carpet at our welcome dinner event at Welcome To Brunswick. The Welcome Dinner is our first chance to connect as a community across the weekend.
Our guest presenter is Indigenous Outreach Projects. They are a local First Nation dance team who focuses on connecting communities with different cultures through dance. They have been working on this for the past 15y and have received many accolades for their work to connect cultures using indigenous dance. They will be presenting some of their work and also answer questions about how we can all work to help bridge cultural divides (which is something as dancers, we encounter regularly).
Also at the event, the committee will be introducing how the weekend will work, plus answering all your questions about the Convention,  including how a Convention is different to a festival,  where the idea was born and anything else you’d like to know.
