Queer Arts Festival 2014

Details

The Queer Arts Festival in Vancouver is an annual artist-run showcase of queer arts, culture and history. It celebrates the unique creative expressions of visual and performing artists who identify as part of the queer communities. QAF features a curated visual arts show, a community art show, and 3 dynamic weeks of cutting-edge performances and workshops from all artistic disciplines, including music, dance, theatre, literary and media arts.

The theme of QAF 2014, ReGenerations, is a defiant reframing of the Nazi term "Degenerate Art". Tyrants throughout history have banned artists or artworks, arguing they posed an imminent danger to the social fabric.  QAF 2014 embraces the premise that art can be dangerous, even revolutionary. In the intimate act of sharing as artists and audiences we find meaning and transformation. And from that vulnerable place, we find the strength to change the world.
