___________________________________________________________ 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. ___________________________________________________________ Praise for the Queer Arts Festival: “Concise, brilliant and moving” — Georgia Straight “An out-and out cultural bonanza” — Vancouver Sun “Some of the most adventurous programming of any local arts festival.” — The Province “On the forefront of aesthetic and cultural dialogue today” — Xtra West ___________________________________________________________
