Antwerp Queer Arts Festival is a multidisciplinary arts festival that thematizes gender and sexual diversity. For the past 9 years, the festival has programmed both local artists and international talent within a variety of art forms: music, literature, film, dance, theater, exhibition, performance.... They work with open calls and have a special interest in new queer talent.

AQAF is more than an arts festival. In collaboration with academia and activists, it creates a space and a platform for people to express themselves and meet others. AQAF is a grassroots initiative. It relies on community support to create the space and representation we need. Your ticket purchase or donations directly support queer performers.

As part of the 2023 program, the festival presents an exhibition at Kunsthal Extra City and MORPHO. Here all participating visual artists will be brought together in an eclectic group exhibition. The opening night on Friday, August 4, features live performances by Sarjon Azouz at 20:02 and special guest Kryzstof Leon Dziemaszkiewicz at 21:27. Dziemaszkiewicz is the protagonist of the documentary LEON, which can be seen on Sunday, Aug. 6, at The Cinema.
