Meet this year’s amazing QueerCore artists joining our development programme.
Luke Fawcett (he/him)
Luke is an architectural designer and creative researcher, passionate about preserving Queer heritage whilst considering the future of Queer spaces. His work explores the history of LGBTQ+ communities in Northern England – retelling the often overlooked and undocumented stories of our past through spatial remodelling and artistic interpretations. Here, he hopes to correct Queer archival silences and create new ways for our community to engage with our heritage.
Ollie Adebisi (She/They/He)
Being child of Nigerian and Moroccan immigrants and shamelessly queer, neurodivergent, polyamorous and ex-Muslim, Ollie feels that representation is vital. Their writing includes prose, poetry, playwriting and screenwriting. Ollie enjoys delving into her own psychology as well as the psychology of the world around them, using their work to process their identity and perspective.”
Grace Tompkins (She/Her)
Grace is a writer, performer, and producer based in Liverpool. Her work contains themes of community, nature and power, with a specific focus on how art in online spaces can be used to deceive or mislead audiences. She likes long walks on the beach, lists of three, and Hubert Selby Jnr.
Bronwyn Andrews (They/Them)
Bronwyn is a non-binary photographer/multidisciplinary artist from Louth, Ireland.
Their photographic practice is grounded in the Sapphic experience. They are interested in examining Ireland’s heritage and how our national memory affects us today, as well as Pre Catholic/Christian imagery. Bronwyn interrogates these themes via Socially Engaged portraiture as well as self-portraiture, with their queer identity firmly at the centre.
Since arriving in Liverpool in 2023, they quickly involved themselves in Liverpool’s Socially Engaged Photography scene – working with Open Eye Gallery to help communities in Merseyside tell their stories.
They’re also finding their feet as a Baby Dyke DJ!
