The Q+ Hub is a reclaimed shipping container that has been architecturally modified so that it transforms in a host of different ways. This multi-artform, queer venue, houses an evolving public art installation and live art activation and will play host to queer events, such as live performance, dance parties, exhibitions, workshops, markets, cinema and can take up residency practically anywhere!

Decorated with all 12 colours of the fully inclusive rainbow, the Q+ Hub is a beacon of LGBTIAQ+ visibility and pride, wherever it lands.

The Q+ Hub, is itself, a piece of queer art that will gradually evolve into a historic queer community artwork.

As the Q+ Hub is activated around Australia, each of the 12 colours on the Hub’s exterior will be replaced by the work of a local queer artist who will add their own unique experience of being an LGBTIAQ+ person to the work. At each activation, the general public will be invited inside the Q+ Hub to listen, read and interact with the messages left by others and add their own.

The Q+ Hub fulfills an important need within the queer community, finding artistic solutions to the isolation and social disconnection of queer people within rural & regional communities.

Our Vision is to visit and connect queer communities across Australia, particularly those where limited opportunities may exist to connect with LGBTQIA+ culture. We hope to contribute towards the greater retention of LGBTQIA+ people within rural & regional areas and encourage stronger connections between regional and metropolitan queer communities.

HAVING ALMOST FUNDED OUR DEBUT ACTIVATION IN BENDIGO FROM 27th-28th THIS MARCH FOR BENDIGO PRIDE, WE ARE INCHES AWAY FROM TURNING THIS DREAM PROJECT INTO A REALITY!

YOU CAN HELP US GET ACROSS THE LINE 🙂

Your donation will directly help in the building of the container and the hiring of the queer artists, both of which are central to bringing the Q+ Hub to life in March 2021.

You’ll be ensuring that this project lands in Bendigo and makes a big impact. You’ll also be giving yourself a cool venue and an exciting programme of events to visit in Bendigo this Autumn.

Our vision is to come to queer communities across Australia (particularly those that are isolated or located in regional and rural parts of Australia) and connect them with each other.

Our mission is to facilitate queer and inclusive events without labels, utilising performance, visual art and architecture to interrogate and find solutions to the isolation and social disconnection of queer people within rural communities
