The No Outsiders Family Festival event takes place on Saturday August 6 at 2.15pm, at West Midlands Creative Centre in Digbeth. Forming part of Rogueplay's TILT Festival, entry is included in the £20 family day pass. The show is also performed at Midlands Arts Centre at 2pm on Sunday August 7 where entry is free.
Open to children aged three to ten and their grown-ups, Fairy Dust Party features an adventure led by fairies who take on different characters performing song, dance and spoken word followed by a disco party.
No Outsiders Festival producer and Fairy Dust Party director Dr Hannah Phillips said: "This interactive new work takes a strength-based approach focusing on artists' and children's strengths, skills, power and capabilities rather than vulnerabilities. The importance of this work is LGBTQIA artists are represented and visible for young audiences. The message of the piece is universal for all children. Just be you! You are enough!"
No Outsiders is a Birmingham-based charity aiming to promote inclusion and a sense of community in schools. Its founder Andrew Moffat said: "The inclusive No Outsiders ethos is a perfect vehicle for arts projects and celebrations. Let's make sure all children in our beautiful diverse city see themselves represented and know they belong."
Fairy Dust Party partners include Birmingham City Council, Birmingham Pride and Midlands Arts Centre, and is presented by the Birmingham 2022 Festival. For more info visit www.tiltfestival.com/familyday OR macbirmingham.co.uk/event/fairy-dust-party
