Speakers: Dan Vo in conversation with Ashton Attzs, Corinne Cumming, Patrick McCrae and Guillaume Vandame

What does queer art and activism look like? Who are the key artists? What stories do they tell? Can museums and galleries be queered? Join Dan Vo, project manager of the Queer Heritage and Collections Network supported by the Art Fund, in an open discussion with Corinne Cumming, Artistic Director of Pride Inside UK, Patrick McCrae, CEO of Artiq and Founder of Queer Frontiers; socially engaged artist and curator, Guillaume Vandame; and award-winning illustrator, painter and poet Ashton Attzs to explore the role of queer identities in creative practice and the need to bring queer activism into museums, galleries, public spaces and beyond.


All of these talks will be taking place online via Zoom. Details of how to access the talks will be shared with you no later than 48 hours before the event. For any questions about accessibility please contact Nerissa.taysom@wattsgallery.org.uk
