Due to the COVID-19 situation in Canberra and ensuring the safety of our community we’re preparing for Fair Day - Pride in the Virtual Park. We’re inviting you to take this exciting journey with us as we design and setup a new virtual event using the platform Topia. In 2020 Topia hosted Burning Man online with over 20,000 guests, 200+ unique camps, exploration, and events!
Meridian and SpringOUT are proud to present CBR Fair Day Pride in the Virtual Park 2021. Fair Day Pride in the Park is Canberra’s biggest LGBTIQA+ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, gender diverse, intersex, queer, and asexual, +) community event and a celebration of Canberra’s wonderful and diverse LGBTIQA+ communities.
Fair Day has launched the SpringOUT Pride Festival each year since SpringOUT’s inauguration in 1999 and is one of the most anticipated events on the LGBTIQA+ calendar. SpringOUT is Canberra’s queer cultural festival which affirms the pride, joy, dignity and identity of Canberra’s LGBTIQA+ communities through events of celebration.
What is TOPIA?
Topia is an online social engagement platform with fully customisable virtual worlds. Using spatial video, users can move in and out of conversations like you’re in person. We'll be creating a virtual Fair Day world with interactive stalls, performances, activities and so much more!
