Q-MART 2023 will be bringing over 30 queer makers, artists, and contributors who will be taking over the Positive East building selling and showcasing their work and keeping 100% of their sales. A day to celebrate our beautiful queerness, art, community and activism.
– There’s more! –
DJ Conor Lynch (Eagle/Horse Meat Disco and Twisted Pepper) on the decks, a cafe takeover by Kreme Kween (with 100% of cafe sales supporting Positive East’s work!), MAC makeovers and, importantly, HIV/STI testing.
Q-MART 2023 is all about celebrating our connection to the queer community and showcasing queer art in all its abundance, beauty and power.
Art and HIV activism have always been linked, with HIV activists relying on the artistic medium to spread awareness and reach new audiences with key messages. Organisations like Gran Fury and the AIDS Quilt show the invaluable addition of art within the history of HIV.
Q-MART 2023 draws on this history, bringing together artists and the HIV community together under one roof to celebrate, honour and raise awareness.
