2021 Queer Chinese Art Festival Archive


😻We are thrilled to announce the launch of our new project “Community-focused Queer Chinese Art Festival” which will run for months. 😻
🌈This project amplifies the voices and life experiences of emerging artists and talents through various events including film screenings, exhibitions, panel discussions, workshops, podcast, crafts, art fairs, mentorship, etc.
Art is for everyone!
We strive to amplify the voices of queer artists by providing opportunities and platforms for them and their fabulous works. It is also our goal to connect people of all ages, abilities, and backgrounds to the world of art while supporting them to express themselves through art especially under the pressure of Covid-19. 
Safe Distance Documentary is a documentary & photography project created by Jamie Chi. Safe Distance interviewed 32 Chinese Queer living in the UK during the outbreak of Covid-19. Many of the artists taking part in this festival were interviewed in this film.
We are looking for partners who are willing to offer supports (e.g. venues, products, fund etc) for us to continue the Art Festival. If you are interested, please do not hesitate to DM us or reach out to us through email queerchineseartfestival@gmail.com. 

Queer Chinese Art Festival is committed to providing art experiences that are accessible to everyone. If you are interested in making this worthwhile donation, please make your payment through https://queerchinauk.com/contact/
