An evening of corporate presentations and personal optimisation. But queer.
Queer PowerPoint

A cult hit performance series that invites queer artists to explore an idea, current obsession, or ongoing fascination using that most staid and ubiquitous of programming tools—PowerPoint. It’s basically a bunch of queers deep-diving into highly niche content in a very gay way.

Creators Xanthe Dobbie and Harriet Gillies host this night of surprising stories, secret passions and starwipe that will queer the corporate presentation and claim it from our straight capitalist wannabe overlords.

Expect some powerful points presented powerfully using a digital tool from a simpler time.
