Building on the success of three Conferences (2016-2018) and two Film Festivals (2017 and 2018), this year our focus is on our first ever ‘Queer’ Asia Summer Programme, bringing together academics, activists, performers, film-makers, and artists from divergent backgrounds and regional contexts. Running in tandem will be our 2019 Film Festival and 2019 Art Exhibition, housed at the British Museum, London and SOAS University of London.

The goals of the ‘Queer’ Asia summer programme are to diversify knowledge on queer experience and specific regions by bringing together ideas, learning, and strategies from other Asian contexts through engagement in active participatory dialogue. The inter-disciplinary and inter-media model of the summer programme is intended to broaden our understanding of thinking about queer and Asian intersectionality. How do different mediums (academic, cinematic, artistic, practitioner-led works) reflect and negotiate queerness in Asia, what are their strategies and methodologies, how can collaborative models of resistance and development be framed and help envision new possibilities? The range of workshops, roundtables, and sessions that we have planned serve to both decolonise fixed methodologies but also enhance and build capacity among participants.
