We’re kicking off a new start in LGBTQ+ Gothenburg with an electrifying bang. During this jam-packed week of mouth-watering LGBTQ+ culture we’ll be making together, exploring together and getting to know each other.
We’ll be featuring everything form dance to drawing, workshopping to film-watching and many more delights by talent across the city and the Nordic and Baltic to get this queer and trans party started.
Our community is fractured yet we are many. Through LGBTQ+ art and culture for and by LGBTQ+ people we’re going to use this week to explore each other’s experiences and nurture new connections.
From August 16th-22nd, the festival is taking place in our very own slice of community heaven – a space between our world of cis-het bullshit and some distant queer utopia beyond – hosted by the shell of Galleri Box.
ALL events are FREE ENTRY 😘😘😘😘

The Queer Agenda
The Queer Agenda is a network of LGBTQ+ artists, activists and community builders from across the Nordic and Baltic regions. Our fields vary from film making to illustration, intersectional organising to dance and more!
As LGBTQ+ cultural producers, community builders and individuals we face lots of different and specific challenges. These challenges vary enormously depending on who we are, where we come from and in what situation we are in.
Our work as a network has explored our visions and dreams for the future by drawing on our different experiences and knowledges from the past. Through a series of workshops we tackled issues facing us as LGBTQ+ organisers and artists and explored our desires for utopian queer spaces and relations.
From this process we produced 3 artist briefs. We gave these briefs to 3 different artists and groups who will present their artistic responses during our festival Sparkplug, kicking off at Galleri Box on the 16th of August!
Current partners include:
Daniel Mariblanca, Norway
