Curious Arts’ flagship festival has been providing a platform for regional and national artists in a variety of art-forms since its first outing in 2016. It’s been a centrepiece for showcasing and celebrating LGBTQIA+ culture through the projects that Curious Arts has helped to develop, as well as increasing visibility and understanding of the LGBTQIA+ community.

This year’s event is taking the format of a micro-festival which will play out online. As part of this, they’ve launched the Audio Queer podcast, a celebration and showcase of LGBTQIA+ creatives from across the North East.

So far, they’ve invited the likes of illustrator, graphic designer and drag artist Adrián Martín; radio broadcaster and drag king Stevie Wonderful, aka Fiona King; maker researcher and drag king Lady Kitt; Joanie Crump, creative producer and director of Hartlepool Folk Festival, Small Brown Dog CIC and 2021 queer arts festival, Eek!; and queer arts collective, Bordello.

Audio Queer is keeping the spirit of Curious Festival alive during its unprecedented hiatus, ensuring that Curious Arts continue their mission to increase LGBTQIA+ visibility. Audibly.
