The Queer Arts Festival (QAF) is an annual artist-run multi-disciplinary summer arts festival at the Roundhouse in Vancouver, BC. Recognized as one of the top 5 festivals of its kind worldwide (Melbourne Sun Herald), QAF harnesses the visceral, transformative power of the arts to inspire recognition, respect, and visibility of people who transgress gender and sexual norms. Through the intimate act of sharing as artists and audiences, we bring diverse communities together to support artistic risk-taking, incite creative collaboration and experimentation, and celebrate the rich historic heritage of queer artists and art. Each year, the festival theme ties together a curated visual art exhibition, performing arts series, workshops for youth and adults, artist talks, panels, and media art screenings.
