Queer + Trans* Art Sector Meeting

1 July 2019
7:00 pm
9:00 pm

In recent months across the UK we’ve become aware of multiple violent attacks towards our community – some well reported in the media, some told to us through emails and direct messages with colleagues, participants and pals.

We’ve heard stories of graphic violence, silencing, abuse, hate campaigns, threats and blood shed. This is happening at a time when MP’s from both sides of the house have opposed the teaching of LGBTQ+ relationships in school, when prominent trans* activists are smeared and removed from third sector campaigning, when those at the forefront to become the next prime minister deny our equality, amongst very public, violent attacks.

We feel must respond – we believe this has to be a collective response that goes beyond the four walls of our theatres, art spaces and practices – but let’s start with what we know, the assets we have, the institutions we have onside and the makers who can collectively decide the best foot forward.

We think the first step is to set up 12 national meetings to be held simultaneously, where we as a sector decide how best to respond – collective thought, collective activism, collective agenda.

Are you an artist / producer / maker and want to attend?

This isn’t the answer to our problems but we think it’s a start.
