Feeling a bit lost?
Join us for a beer and snag as we explore the power of being lost, hidden things and the irrational as part of the second Around the Outside for 2017. The day will feature a series of interactive discursive sessions about alternative cartographies, queer resistance and the supernatural, as well as a special feature-length screening.
