AQAF is an international arts festival, questioning gender and sexual diversity, that takes place each year at the beginning of August. For the past 7 editions, each year we have programmed both local performers and international talent within a variety of art forms: music, literature, film, dance, theatre, exposition, performance…
AQAF is more than an arts festival. Collaborating with academia and activists, we create a space and a platform for people to express themselves and to meet others. AQAF is a grassroots initiative by the Antwerp Pink House, umbrella organisation for the rainbow community. It relies on community support to create the spaces and representation that we need. Your ticket purchase directly supports queer performers.
AQAF collaborates closely with creative headquarter De Studio. To end this year, we will stream
"Happy New Queer!" live from De Studio. Bringing a variety of performers, activists, writers... to the stage with lots, and lots of glitters and snow.
