Queer Cultural Center will select 5-7 applicants for the CQC2 cohort. CQC2 cohort members will receive professional development workshops and will produce an individual cultural event as part of QCC’s 2025 Spring Queer Arts Festival. 

The artistic theme for the 2025 Spring Queer Arts Festival is “Pleasure in the Storm”. We invite projects that address queer approaches to sustaining ourselves and our communities through cultivating inner joy, community connection, and sensory pleasures amid the ongoing political, cultural, public health, and climate crises that shape our current material conditions.

The Program Manager plays a critical role in the successful development, implementation, and management of QCC’s core programs. This role is responsible for overseeing two key initiatives: Creating Queer Communities (CQC) workshops (levels 1 and 2) and the National Queer Arts Festival (NQAF) held biannually (spring and fall).

We invite artists and creatives of all disciplines to join us on March 16th as we walk through the most important parts of drafting a budget for your upcoming project or production. 

We want to give a warm welcome to our new Creating Queer Communities Level 1 Cohort <3!
