OUR FISCALLY SPONSORED PROJECTS

Queer Cultural Center has served as an incubator for dozens of artists, collectives, and organizations who have inspired broad cultural impact through their work. We know that funding is a crucial aspect of creative practices and many financial resources are out of reach due to proposal requirements. To address this power dynamic and support equity in the arts, we offer fiscal sponsorship to individuals and organizations whose work aligns with our values.
