Join us Dec 5, 2023 for See You Next Tuesday – our very own Giving Tuesday fundraising effort! Our fundraising goal of $2,500 will help us provide a space for artists to develop and Present cutting-edge new works and nurture the next generation of queer talent by supporting the formal launch of the SUM-AIR (SUM gallery Artist-In-Residence) program. This fundraiser will remain active until the end of the year. Donors who give over $20 will be mailed a charitable tax receipt.

Art changes people, and people change the world.

The Queer Arts Festival showcases some of the world’s most innovative minds in a context that allows them to be out and proud, as artists. Every year, the Festival becomes a vibrant gathering place where queers and allies come together to foster and celebrate community through creativity.

Artists, audiences, volunteers, donors and partners alike tell us that the Festival has given them a greater sense of belonging in queer communities, and with that, the confidence to stand in their power. Inspired by the diversity and intersectionality of the art we strive to present, we have witnessed youth attending the festival discover the courage to be who they are and create the kind of art that only comes being able to truly be yourself and see yourself represented in artistic spaces.

Each year, the Festival’s success and programming at SUM gallery is built upon the inspiring and generous support of our donors and partners. Whether you are able to make a one-time gift, or perhaps commit to sustain the festival with a monthly contribution, your tax-deductible donation helps the Festival commission and incubate cutting-edge new queer work, nurture the next generation of queer talent, and celebrate with the wider world the best our communities have to offer.

You can contribute to the creation & presentation of great art AND combat stigma by helping us promote representation for our community all with a single donation.
