Situated in the lively Greenwich neighborhood of London, this new space would provide LGBTQ+ artists with a permanent place where they could exhibit their art. Aside from the main gallery, it will also house a library and a project space that will house residencies to support artists at pivotal times in their careers.
Beyond being a platform for artists to showcase their art, the space will also serve as a place for thought exchange, to address social inequalities affecting the LGBTQ+ community and to promote intergenerational dialogue.
Queercircle founder Ashley Joiner had this to say about the project : "Now more than ever, the LGBTQ+ community needs and deserves a place to come together; a safe space where we can continue to support one another, be creative, and create radical change. A space which inspires, tackles social isolation and supports our mental health and wellbeing; and we are grateful to be partnering with organisations such as Culture&, Arts & Health Club and other members of LGBT+ Consortium to develop dynamic initiatives to achieve this."
