Mentorship Programme in New York
“QUEER|ART was launched in 2009 to support a generation of LGBTQ+ artists that lost mentors to the AIDS Crisis of the 1980s. By fostering the confident expression of LGBTQ+ artists’ perspectives, stories, and identities, Queer|Art amplifies the voice of a population that has been historically suppressed, disenfranchised, and often overlooked by traditional institutional and economic support systems. (…)
Queer|Art|Mentorship is the core program of PRACTICE and the cornerstone of all activity at Queer|Art. The annual 13-month program cultivates an intergenerational and interdisciplinary network of support and shared knowledge among a diverse and vibrant community of LGBTQ filmmakers, authors, performers, curators, and visual artists.”
