Time: All Day
Viewed as one of the top three queer arts and culture festivals in the world, the 12th annual Queer Arts Festival “WICKED”: Vancouver’s artist-run, professional, multi-disciplinary roister of queer arts, culture & history returns July 16 – 26, 2020.
Welcome to our WICKEDness! From “zines to screens”, #QAF2020 promises a queerly-digital-visual experience across varied platforms ensuring everyone the opportunity to participate in this year’s Queer Arts Festival. WICKED features streaming art tours, on-line presentations of the performances, installations throughout the city, and a hard copy QAF free Zine that encompasses the entire festival with artist and programming notes, behind the scenes commentary and extra art surprises for the reader!
From a digital standpoint, our 11 days of featured programming, which includes the opening visual arts exhibit/celebration/tour, theatre, dance, workshops and TOO SPIRIT – Indigenous Burlesque from Virago Nation, will bring our audiences into the heart of the action with a simple click of the mouse (or tap of the screen). Audience members will be able to interact with each other online while enjoying the show.
QAF’s Wicked revels in the quintessentially queer traditions of scandal and excess with visual art, performance, theatre, music, dance, and literary events and runs 11 days (July 16th – 26th 2020) via our digital hub.
