Our Margaret River mini Beanie Festival will be held in conjunction with Arts Margaret River, who are hosting the Performing Lines touring production of Head Full of Love by Alana Valentine with the Queensland Theatre Company at Margaret River Cultural Centre the following Thursday 24th September.
Head Full of Love invites audiences to see positive reconciliation between an Indigenous and non- Indigenous person on stage, and operates with a deep awareness of the social context around the presentation of this kind of work. It mirrors genuine reconciliation work being done at the actual Beanie Festival in Alice Springs and makes no apology in advocating for social change.
