Planning Meeting

Meet the people who make QAF happen, learn about the submissions process, and help brainstorm the theme for 2015. Pride in Art welcomes artists and art-lovers of all ages, orientations, backgrounds and abilities to participate in QAF’s ongoing planning and preparation.

QAF is brought to you by the Pride in Art Society (PiA), a registered charity.

QAF is an artist-run multidisciplinary festival held in Vancouver, featuring a curated visual arts exhibition, a community visual art show, a series of cutting-edge performing arts events, and inspiring workshops for adults and youth. Our curatorial vision favours innovative, challenging, thought-provoking work that pushes boundaries and initiates dialogue. We create positive social change by promoting compassion, empathy and understanding through the arts.

The Pride in Art Society’s mission is to promote the production, exhibition, visibility and appreciation of queer art and artists, creating opportunities for dialogue among artists from different disciplines. PiA fosters inclusion, equality and a strong political voice for queer communities, including contributions of historical artists. We combat homophobia by building public awareness and acceptance of individuals and groups outside sexual and gender norms.

This event is scent-reduced, and fully wheelchair accessible. For more information on how to support a scent-reduced event, please visit For a full accessibility audit of the space, visit Building Radical Accessible Communities.

The Radical Accessibility Mapping Project performed an accessibility audit for the Roundhouse in August 2011, and the space has remained the same since.
