About Queer Art Fest Inc.
284 Seigel St, Brooklyn, NY 11206, US
QUEER ART FEST INC. is committed to uplifting and investing in Queer artists and creators. By curating dynamic and accessible programming, we’re developing opportunities and connections that celebrate the richness of our community.
We believe it is now more important than ever to create new opportunities and platforms for independent LGBTQ+ artist and creators. We are achieving this by developing accessible programming for Queer artists across a variety of formats. Many LGBTQ+ artists & creators experience cultural bias that can make it difficult to participate in mainstream art fairs. Our events create accessible points of entry into the art world.
Our long term cultural vision is to establish a permanent space, which will be a hub for marginalized Queer creatives and a place for artists to find their intended audience.
