More about the QCC…
Since its founding in 1993, QCC has acted as a presenting and development resource for diverse queer-identified artists in the San Francisco Bay Area. Founded by queer-activists and artists, various programs have helped artists to exhibit and present their artistic work and receive foundation and government dollars that would otherwise be inaccessible.
QCC works with many of our artists as fiscally sponsored projects to ensure the development of successful queer arts organizations that diversify the arts ecosystem. Some organizations that have grown out of QCC include Fresh Meat Productions/Sean Dorsey Dance, the Queer Women of Color Media Arts Project and RADAR Productions.
Additionally, their National Queer Arts Festival (NQAF) has presented over 1,800 LGBTQ artists including Bill T. Jones, Alice Walker, Robert Rauschenberg, Ester Hernanez, Adrienne Rich, Marga Gomez, Justin Chin, Cherrie Moraga and Dorothy Allison (for a more complete list of artists, please watch our "QCC A-Z" video.
