The focus of the discussion will be around the the various methods QTIPOC (queer, trans, intersex and people of colour) artists manoeuvre their work in and out of Institutions and DIY spaces in order to negotiate surviving as artists, as well as critiquing the meanings of success and marginality.
Held at Open School East, one of London’s recently established non-paying open art school-cum-communities (another is School of the Damned), also highlighted will be the relationships between work and success, professionalism and payment and how to deal with asking for renumeration for QTIPOC artistic capital and labours.

It is only through the dedication and generosity of everyone involved that AQNB manages to continue. More than ever we need to build a resilient space for independent media, one that works in collaboration with its artists, administrators, and audiences. Not everyone can afford to give donations we know - but if you can spare $1 a month, you like what AQNB is about and want to secure this space for the future, then please lend a hand and sign up. Thank u so much! <3
