Queer Arts for the Hearts of London!


And What? Queer. Arts. Festival. is a platform to show the work of Queer and LGBTQIA+ artists, makers and producers, to encourage different spaces for artistic conversation, open doors to venues and provide new experiences for audiences across London….

Our programme is almost entirely made up of world premieres and/or London firsts, including brand new: theatre, music, live art, club nights, drag shows, youth engagement projects (Talking Genders / Himherandit), exhibitions, circus, cabaret and some really out-there ‘experiences’
Things will be happening across London, in traditional spaces like theatres and galleries; Queer spaces, like clubs and back rooms; public spaces such as cinemas and more unusual corners, nooks and crannies, from churches and swimming pools to tattoo studios. We support national and international artists, emerging and world famous. And What? welcomes some of the most exciting queer voices around like Alexander Geist (La JohnJoseph), Rosie Wilby, Nando Messias and Darren Pritchard/Cornel Simons (House of Ghetto: Black Pride). In total there is 30+ events, supporting more than 150 artists, and a little somethin’ somthin’ for everyone.

So what are you waiting for? Jump in and enjoy the slightly murky waters of And What? Queer.
