Queer Theory for Queer Artists
Sunday 10th Nov
Black Box Green Room
This workshop is for all makers of queer art of any kind – performers, writers, film directors, theatre makers, visual artists – who want to know more about Queer Theory and are curious to find out what all the fuss is about. Queer theory can be dense and sometimes it uses a lot of jargon, but the truth is that queer theory came out of queer art and activism and lots of queer artists are using queer theory in their work already, sometimes without even realising it!
Jackie Stacey and Monica Pearl (The University of Manchester), academics and activists, will guide this workshop that’s about creating a better understanding of the terms and theories that have influenced all of us and that have fuelled queer art practice, however indirectly.
This is not a class – no reading or prior knowledge of queer theory of any kind is necessary. It’s a workshop to explore ideas and empower participants.
This event has already been exciting much interest in the queer arts community in Manchester, and is part of a new initiative that’s developing informal and accessible learning space for queer artists.
Limited spaces. Advance registration essential.
