Making History - 2010 National Queer Arts Festival Call for Applications
San Francisco based Queer Cultural Center is accepting applications, between September 1 and November 30, 2009, for its 2010 National Queer Arts Festival. The theme of the 2010 edition of the festival is Making History. The applications may include personal and community history, but the organizers are especially looking for unique interpretations of the history we are working toward making today.
The number of artists, the nature and discipline of the work or exhibit and what you hope to
achieve with the event’s production should be included in the short description of your event (no more than 2 pages). Additionally, you will need to create a budget for the program, assuming that you will need space, all technical demands, publicity and personnel.
If your project is chosen, you will be required to attend various meetings and supply materials prior to the Festival in January-March.
Since 1998, QCC has organized an annual month-long National Queer Arts Festival, presenting more than 400 different events featuring over 2000 queer artists including Bill T. Jones, Alice Walker, Robert Rauschenberg, Ester Hernandez, Adrienne Rich, Marga Gomez, Justin Chin, Cherrie Moraga and Dorothy Allison.
