And What? Queer. Arts. Festival

And What? Queer. Arts. Festival

Monday, 01 October 2018 until Wednesday, 31 October 2018

Last year we launched And What? Queer. Arts. Festival. as a platform to show the work of Queer and LGBTQIA+ artists, makers and producers, to encourage different spaces for artistic conversation, open doors to venues and provide new experiences for audiences across London…. we didn’t expect it to be such a roaring success! So, we are back with that difficult second album, and this year, we have upped-the-ante.

For anyone that doesn’t already know, 2017 is the 50th year since the partial decriminalisation of Homosexuality in England and Wales. In recognition of this And What? 2017 has kept its toe in the past and eyes firmly fixed on the future. Our programme is almost entirely made up of world premieres and/or London firsts, including brand new: theatre, music, live art, club nights, drag shows, youth engagement projects (Talking Genders / Himherandit), exhibitions, circus, cabaret and some really out-there ‘experiences’. Even our project commemorating partial decriminalisation Bouquet 50 is forward facing. It aims to create a living monument to keep the conversation alive until its next anniversary. Afterall, it’s not just about 2017.
