Homotopia’s Artist Development Programme 

Homotopia has championed LGBTQIA artists based in/from Liverpool and the North West for over 15 years. QueerCore is our formal artist development programme. 



At the start of the year we put out a call for our artist development programme, QueerCore. The first round was really successful; we have accepted four artists/companies onto the programme and are able to support additional artists in other ways. We still making decisions on other applications.

We intended for QueerCore to have an open and rolling application process but with the current crisis, we have needed to rethink and will not be accepting new applications after 5pm on 26th March 2020.

Instead, we are opening a new commissioning opportunity open to all LGBTQIA artsist which will focus on innovative new digital work. Applications are open until the 22nd of April 2020.

We will continue to support artists currently accepted onto Queercore, but under these highly unusual circumstances, want to refocus our work to support artists in the most effective ways for the current climate.



Previous QueerCore supported performances include:

Gay Black theatre Rent Party
