Montreal’s Multidisciplinary Festival for Queer Creators
May 10-12, 2019 at Playwrights’ Workshop Montreal

At the Rose Festival, Queer Art means art created by Queer creators, curated by Queer curators, directed by Queer directors, embodied by Queer performers. And while we applaud the growing number of lgbt+ characters starting to emerge in our mainstream stories, we are not satisfied by representation alone, and we know that Queer creators were telling their stories and creating their art long before it became commodified by mainstream entertainment.

The Rose Festival seeks to tell these Queer stories, and provide a platform for Queer art. The festival strives to give Queer artists the opportunity to create and show their work without apology, to speak full voiced, to fully embrace their Queer identity, without having to straighten or temper their art in any way for fear of offending an audience. Moreover, we prioritize those voices that are marginalized within our community — poc, disabled, SWer voices.

The Rose Festival is supported by the space residency program at Playwrights’ Workshop Montreal
