Northern Centre for Contemporary Art
Queer North is a community-based art project which explores the connection between place & sexual and gender identity. Through a series of art workshops the project aims to involve diverse participants from Darwin and the Northern Territory’s queer communities, targeting those who are most marginalised.
The project seeks to give voice and expression to an act and statement of queer north identity by offering workshop participants exposure to screen printing and graphic design techniques as well as to a queer art history of the NT. Participants will produce (or co-produce) screen/photographic prints for gallery and street exhibition & T-shirts.
