Calling all LGBTQ, femme, and nonbinary artists!

Calling all LGBTQ, femme, and nonbinary artists! Pipeline Gallery is hosting a virtual seminar series "Barriers in the Arts" and for our first in the series we will be working with UnBound Arts Collective, a US-based collaboration between womyn, trans, and nonbinary creatives working to share the voices and works of the marginalized, with an emphasis on the intersecting disadvantages faced by black folks, indigenous folks, and people of color globally. They collaborate to dismantle patriarchy, racism, and imperialism through educational and artistic projects such as this seminar series and their quarterly publication, UnBound Zine.
Pipeline Gallery is an alternative curatorial space looking to support students, graduates and emerging artists. This seminar is part of larger series looking at the barriers many under-represented artists face. The aim of the seminar is to build up a community and to help support emerging artists as they embark on a career that isn't always based on a level playing field. By applying you will have the chance to be a member of our artist panel and will lead conversations to help fellow creatives and build community.
Together, we will be discussing the particular challenges that LGBTQ+, femme, and nonbinary folks experience when entering the art world, as well as hearing from successful creators who have found community and opportunity despite these barriers.
Do you have a success story to share? Strategies for navigating the art world and finding community? Are you looking to use your platform to help support new and emerging artists and art students, especially those in the LGBTQ+ community or who identify as femme or nonbinary?
Please apply to join our artist panel! Applications will be open through February 15th.
Applying takes no more than 10 minutes! Just prepare a bio, statement of interest, and a small sampling of your artwork!
We can't wait to hear from you!
