QUEERING THE SECTOR: MEANINGFUL CARE, MEANINGFUL CHANGE
***FREE TICKETS FOR LOW INCOME. to book a free ticket to this event, simply email firstname.lastname@example.org.
In our adversarial political climate, queerness offers strategies, possibilities and ways of working that are original, cooperative, sustainable and can empower marginalised communities. Grand Union Gallery, The Marlborough Pub & Theatre (New Queers on the Block) and SHOUT Festival present an informal day of provocations, discussion and networking for the arts and heritage sector exploring how we can better support queer artists, audiences, and communities.
Sessions will focus on:
- Supporting queer artists, on tour and inside institutions.
- Class, disability, and what barriers stops queer people from accessing the arts.
- Tokenism and representations of race in queer art.
- Regional perspectives of queerness and meaningful engagement outside of urban centres.
We will welcome artists, researchers, curators, community organisers to come together, share, and learn from examples of sector-leading work with queer communities. Drawing on experience across artforms and curatorial practices, including theatre, performance, and visual art, we will offer an intersectional view of queerness providing practical approaches to responding to the specific needs of, and barriers that face our communities.
SHOUT SAYS: Come join us as we unpack the ways the sector can better support queer artists, audiences, and communities.
