ABOUT

The Queer Archive Festival is an arts festival based in Athens, offering a rich program of multimedia experiences, open and accessible to all. The aim of the festival is to address the different approach around the issues of the queer community by supporting young, well-established, domestic or non-domestic artists, enhancing personal experience while promoting public dialogue and focusing on free expression.

 

Video installations, exhibitions, walks, workshops, interactive art and performances will be part of the festival's activities aimed at highlighting talent, supporting progressive thinking and encouraging creativity.

 

 

The first The Queer Archive Festival is powered by Onassis Stegi and it will take place February 13-16 2020 in galleries and alternative venues in downtown Athens. This collaboration aims to expand the queer community of Athens and to welcome the viewpoint of established and emerging creators by offering them equal space and opportunities for communication and exposure.

 

The Queer Archive Festival aims to become a catalyst for curiosity, meaningful discussion and cultural progress and will offer to a wide range of artistic efforts the opportunity to be exhibited and to be easily accessible in a list of venues, all under the same creative umbrella.

 

 

Το The Queer Archive Festival είναι ένα φεστιβάλ τέχνης, που με έδρα την Αθηνά, προτείνει ένα πλούσιο πρόγραμμα πολυμεσικών εμπειριών, ανοιχτό και προσβάσιμο σε όλους. Στόχος του φεστιβάλ είναι η ανάπτυξη της αντίληψης γύρω από τα ζητήματα της queer κοινότητας υποστηρίζοντας νέους και εδραιωμένους εγχώριους ή μη καλλιτέχνες, αναδεικνύοντας την προσωπική εμπειρία, ενώ παράλληλα προωθεί το δημόσιο διάλογο, φέρνοντας στο επίκεντρο την ελεύθερη έκφραση.

 

Video εγκαταστάσεις, εκθέσεις, περίπατοι, workshops, διαδραστική τέχνη και performances θα αποτελέσουν μέρος της δραστηριότητας του φεστιβάλ στοχεύοντας να υπογραμμίσουν το ταλέντο, να υποστηρίξουν την προοδευτική σκέψη και να ενθαρρύνουν την δημιουργικότητα. 

 

To πρώτο The Queer Archive Festival, θα λάβει χώρα 13-16 Φεβρουαρίου του 2020 με την υποστήριξη της Στέγης Γραμμάτων & Τεχνών σε εκθεσιακούς και εναλλακτικούς χώρους στο κέντρο της Αθήνας. Η συνεργασία αυτή στοχεύει στη διεύρυνση της queer κοινότητας της Αθήνας, καλωσορίζοντας τις προτάσεις καθιερωμένων αλλά και ανερχόμενων δημιουργών, προσφέροντάς τους ίσο χώρο και ευκαιρίες επικοινωνίας και έκθεσης.

 

Το The Queer Archive Festival στοχεύει να καταστεί καταλύτης για την περιέργεια, τις ουσιαστικές συζητήσεις και την πολιτιστική πρόοδο και θα προσφέρει σε ένα μεγάλο εύρος καλλιτεχνικών προσπαθειών τη δυνατότητα της έκθεσης και της εύκολης πρόσβασης σε μια λίστα χώρων, υπό την ίδια δημιουργική ομπρέλα.
