Welcome to Midsumma's Hub for Queer Arts and Artists in the time of COVID-19

We've seen an influx of positive stories, opportunities, and examples of ways that our queer creative communities have come together at this time. We wanted to share this with you as well. Keep checking on this continually evolving resource to stay in the loop, not miss any of the opportunities on offer and to keep creatively inspired.

We will keep updating our Midsumma Blog with new opportunities and information. If you want us to share your work (or your friends), or you have something you want to contribute - hit us up at [email protected]

Friday 24 April

There is a sort of buzz in the air as we are congratulated for our collective efforts on staying home, and our creatives become more agile at producing work for online audiences.

Queer Arts and COVID E2
