Queer Art Projects (QAP) is an artist led creative production company that creates art projects like exhibitions, performances, screenings, talks and workshops, commissioning new work from queer artists on cutting edge contemporary issues and bringing existing work together in contexts that underline their relevance and resonance.
QAP also provides services like bidwriting, creative production and executive production, for LGBTQ and diverse artists.
QAP has a digital platform qapdigital.com which is an online gallery for exhibitions, a stage for livestreamings and a space for screenings. Steering clear of 3D technologies, which are not user friendly or formats that merely list the artworks one after the other, qapdigital has a unique user friendly interface that provides each artwork with the space it needs to shine.
To date QAP’s projects have been predominantly funded by the Arts Council England (ACE) in partnership with various organisations like Every Woman Biennial, Goldsmiths University, etc.
Founded and managed by queer artists, who happen to have degrees in business & art and experience in production, QAP is in a unique position to fully understand the creative needs of queer artists, bring out the best in their work, as well as showcase them in such away as to reach the widest possible audience without compromising their artistic integrity.
