Independent artist and educator Fredrik Andersson will lead a 10-week online art social for queer young people (aged 18 – 26). This digital safe space will act as a forum to discuss how the young people’s art practices are affected by lockdown and isolation from the queer community and spaces. This project is run in collaboration with The Outside Project, UK’s first LGBTQIA+ homeless shelter and community centre, based in central London.
The project will cumulate in an online showcase, available at Homotopia.net from Saturday 23 July.
Fredrik Andersson is originally from Sweden and has been based in London for the last five years as an independent artist and educator. He has taught arts education courses at the Camden Art Centre and the Camberwell College of Arts. At CAC, Fred facilitates the Youth Collective. Working as the artistic director for The Outside Project (UK’s first LGBTQIA+ Shelter and community centre) where he raises money, runs workshops and facilitates the Project’s physical and digital spaces alongside the diverse group of stakeholders who use them.
