SUPPORT “QUEERCORE”

Homotopia relies on the generous support of donors to deliver our Artist Development Programme QueerCore.

Do you believe in increasing diversity in the arts and raising LGBTQ+ voices? Homotopia needs you!

Here’s your chance to champion emerging new talent and build a bright future for the UK’s longest running LGBTQ+ arts and cultural festival.

You can help us to support and commission theatre makers, performance artists and writers to make art that challenges the status quo and champions LGBTQ+ rights in new and fresh ways. QueerCore funded artists will perform at Homotopia Festival 2020.

The more you donate, the more we can commission and support!

Other previous QueerCore supported performances and artists include:

Gay Black theatre Rent Party
Rent Party
Hip Hip I'm Gay
Ashleigh Owen

SUPPORT HOMOTOPIA YOUTH PROGRAMME

Homotopia relies on the generous support of donors to deliver our Youth Programme.

Do you believe young people need a platform to speak about their experiences of being young and queer?

We work with LGBTQ+ young people aged 14-18 in making exciting, engaging performance art about gender and sexual identity. This work is then presented in collaboration with education authorities to schools, community groups and conferences.

It is really important for younger children to see role models only slightly older talking about this in a relatable way, hence we focus on primary schools. Our ambitions to increase education around, and decrease bullying based on LGBTQ+ identity.

Our recent production at Blackburne House (Homotopia Festival 2019) as part of ‘Travis Alabanza and Friends’ was a sell out success and recieved much praise for its power and poignancy of message by audiences.

Why Should You Support Us?

MEET AND GREETS

Every year, our key supporters are invited to tea times, dinners and other special events with our headline artists. For instance, in 2018, our tea time with John Walters went down a hoot!

YOUR NAME IN LIGHTS (almost)

As a key supporter you will be named and thanked in our yearly Homotopia Festival brochure and on our website (if you wish to of course!).

IN THE LOOP

We will let you know the full programme before anyone else, and keep you in the loop about what we are up to, with exclusive email updates and events.
