Regional LGBTQIA+ Art Prize 2024
Queerthenic reveals authentic stories from Central Victorian LGBTQIA+ and gender diverse artists in this regional art prize. These stories delve into the mundane everyday, fabulous culture, or explore the influence of queer history and culture on their past, present, and future lives.
1. A state of being whereby you embrace your place within the LGBTQIA+ or gender-diverse community.
2. Living in an authentic and genuine manner, true to your own feelings, beliefs, and experiences with a sense of empowerment, self-acceptance, and living without the constraints of societal norms or expectations.
Following the momentum and success of this year's LGBTQIA+ art prize, That's So Gay, artists are invited to submit work showing what Queerthentic means to them and their community.
Queerthentic will be on display at The Old Auction House in Kyneton, from the 25th of January 2024 to the 12th of February 2024 with a Celebration and Winners announcement on Saturday the 3rd of February 2024.
