Since 2016, QUEERCIRCLE has hosted exploratory workshops and events with artists, curators, writers and community organisers to develop a programme that is befitting to the needs and aspirations of the LGBTQ+ community.
In the midst of a formative year for the UK, QUEERCIRCLE is looking to the future with the launch of a new permanent cultural space in the pioneering Design District. Working at the intersection of arts, culture and social action, our groundbreaking community-focused programme will champion the arts and strengthen links between culture, health and wellbeing.
Evolving out of a need for a new cultural space, QUEERCIRCLE have secured an affordable 2,800 sqft site designed by David Kohn Architects for a minimum of five years. The new site will house a main gallery, a library and project spaces to deliver a diverse programme of exhibition commissions and collaborative artist residencies to support LGBTQ+ artists at pivotal stages in their career; and year-long learning and participation opportunities for the local and LGBTQ+ community.
Having secured an affordable space, we hope to foster an ecology of artists, curators, writers, thinkers, community organisers, grassroots organisations and charities who collectively work together to build a stronger, more creative and collaborative community. In doing so, we hope to create a site of radical change that encourages us to critically think - and unthink - to create new visions, and build a boundless culture of learning.
