TRIGGER: DRAWING THE LINE IN 2015
July 23 to August 7, 2015
Roundhouse Community Centre, 181 Roundhouse Mews
The 2015 Queer Arts Festival is a celebration of queer arts, culture, and history. Celebrating its seventh anniversary, this year’s festival theme Trigger: Drawing the Line in 2015, honours the 25th anniversary of Kiss & Tell’s legendary exhibition. 90 participating artists challenge, provoke, and push boundaries in 23 events.
This multi-disciplinary festival also features a curated art show, more than two weeks of performances, and workshops from all artistic disciplines, including music, dance, theatre, visual arts, literary arts, and media arts.
We will offer you a lesson at the beginning of the evening to teach you and then you'll have an opportunity to dance and sharpen your skills. All you have to do is show up...there is always a partner available for you to dance with and your lesson is included. Its easy, fun, and most of all it gives you a chance to meet great people and to help support your community at large. $10 donation
