Member Profile : Jack Fitzgerald

Welcome! We’d love your feedback!!

The Arts Front Platform is in live beta testing in 2020. The development team are working on it right now. The full Arts Front system will be launched in November. Please take a look around and feel free to try things out. Features will continue to change and develop but any content you create (profiles, events, groups, actions, reports) can stay in the system.

Your content always belongs to you in Arts Front. You can delete your profile and content at any time.

If you have a question or you see something that’s broken or you have ideas for new features or improvements we would love to hear from you.

Jack Fitzgerald spent a lot of time in the education system seeking to define objective answers to life’s questions and distinguish good from bad. While this wasn’t necessarily productive, there are certainly worse ways in which to misspend your youth.

He now leads a plural, genderqueer existence embracing the idea that you can be both starving artist and latest smartphone user, both meaningful artist and attention-starved entertainer, and you can hold a valid opinion about a bottle of red wine even if you order a double bacon and cheese Whopper Value Meal straight afterwards.

A long-time advocate for LGBTQIA+ representation on-screen, as distinct from strictly queer-content, Jack strives to discuss his favourite social justice issues without ever really mentioning them. His creative screen production career has allowed him to do this from behind the lens, but a newfound desire to connect with community more directly, as well as contribute to new designs once 'the old walls' are torn down, makes Arts Front U30 an exciting opportunity.

Currently under-development is his long-time vision and exercise in upskilling, 'Into the Void: a Drag Queen Space Opera Like No Other'. A webseries set in the distant, post-gender, corporatopic future which attempts to pose - less the question ‘what if?’ – and more the question ‘what now?’

Jack lives in Collingwood with a partner, housemate, and a menagerie of 14 animals of various species and sizes, all of which are imaginary.
