A message from the Queer Arts Festival and SUM gallery regarding COVID-19:
Update — May 21st 2020

Art keeps us connected during the age of social distancing. Queer Arts Festival is steadfast in our commitment to artists amid the COVID-19 pandemic, with staff hard at work (from home) to maintain the integrity of our programming. We’ve reimagined the festival to make sure you get your Queer Art Fix from a distance.

All Queer Arts Festival events this year will be accessible online at our virtual stage by donation. RSVP now to events on Eventbrite to receive a link for entry in the coming weeks or go to queerartsfestival.com during the festival (July 16 to 26).

SUM Gallery:

SUM Gallery has been closed to public access due to the Sun Wah Centre closure since Monday, March 23rd. We will announce when the gallery reopens to the public.


Staff will be working remotely during regular hours and can be contacted at info@queerartsfestival.com or you can leave us a voicemail at 604-200-6661.
