Antwerp Queer Arts Festival
05.08.2022–28.08.2022

Arts Festival

Hosted by Antwerp Queer Arts Festival

AQAF is a multidisciplinary arts festival, questioning gender and sexual diversity. For the past 8 years, the festival has programmed both local performers and international talent within a variety of art forms: music, literature, film, dance, theatre, exposition, performance… They work with open calls and have a particular interest for new queer talent.

AQAF is more than an arts festival. Collaborating with academia and activists, it creates a space and a platform for people to express themselves and to meet others. AQAF is a grassroots initiative. It relies on community support to create the spaces and representation that they need. Your ticket purchase or donations directly supports queer performers.

As part of their 2022 programme, the festival presents exhibitions on several locations: The Other Space, Kavka Oudaan, Kunsthal Extra City and MORPHO. At Extra City and MORPHO, all the participating visual artists are gathered. Nathan French, Yamuna Forzani, Denys Shantar, Anna Urazova, Laurent Poisson and Hussein Shikha present drawings, paintings, installation, textile art and sculptural work in an eclectic group exhibition. At Kavka Oudaan, Urazova and Poisson share the expo room. At The Other Space you can enjoy more work by Nathan French and Yamuna Forzani.
