MISSION STATEMENT

Mission statement copy here from Travis. 

 

HISTORY

QUEER|ART launched in 2009 to support a generation of LGBTQ artists that lost mentors to the AIDS Crisis of the 1980s. By fostering the confident expression of LGBTQ artists’ perspectives, stories, and identities, QUEER|ART gives voice to a population that has been historically suppressed, disenfranchised, and often overlooked by traditional institutional and economic support systems.     

QUEER|ART’s interconnected programs fill a critical gap by providing an organizational apparatus that both builds the LGBTQ arts community and develops LGBTQ artists’ work and careers. By cultivating a wide array of voices, QUEER|ARTamplifies the historical understanding of queer, culture and experience. As the artists QUEER|ART supports share their work with audiences around the world, the art and ideas that they explore and hone through QUEER|ART enter a wider cultural conversation and carry larger cultural impact.
