QAF is Vancouver’s transdisciplinary arts festival celebrating queer art and artists through challenging art exhibitions, stimulating live performances and inspiring workshops. This Season’s theme is ReGenerations. A defiant reclaiming of the Nazi concept of “Degenerate Art”, we explore a collective queer heritage that is fecund, generative, and innovative. It is a shared history that crosses generations and national boundaries. ReGenerations speaks to healing and renewal; addressing addiction, bullying, international LGBTI rights, and providing a creative outlet for the most vulnerable members of our communities: youth, refugees, and those in recovery.
ReGenerations is far-reaching and intergenerational, featuring a lineup of artists from 18 to 80, workshops and mentorships which encourage collaboration between the emerging and established, and connecting historical queer icons like Stein, Whitman, and Tchaikovsky to our living, contemporary art practice.
Our curated exhibition by Laiwan and Anne Riley, Queering the International, will feature work by queer artists who are immigrant, indigenous, undocumented, or displaced and/or creatively working toward a liberating diaspora and/or indignity.
