About this event

QAF 2022: Hauntings

JUN 18 - JUL 8 | 2022

What haunts you? Fear? Insecurity? Longing? In a Queer context, our very existence is haunting ― a reminder of what colonial culture attempted to erase and an ephemeral suggestion of what future lays in wait across generations.

QAF 2022 explores Hauntings in both playful and profound ways with a dynamic suite of visual art, performance, music, and literary events. For three weeks, Queer Arts Festival comes to you live and in-person rom the depths of the Sun Wah Centre, up through Centre A Vancouver International Centre For Contemporary Asian Art, On Main Gallery, and SUM gallery, to the rooftop overlooking historic Chinatown.

QAF 2022: Hauntings exclusive festival pass gives you access to all (save for one*) of our entire festival lineup, for a cheeky and discounted price of just $69. That’s a savings of nearly 50% off regular price admission to our ticketed events.

**Double your $69 Pass Option** This festival pass option includes a $69 donation (with a tax receipt). All donations collected for this year’s festival will be matched by a generous group of supporters, up to $15,000, in honour of Hauntings QAF’s 15th annual festival. To help us realize this goal, we invite you to contribute to the campaign by doubling your 69 (!!) — double your impact, and double our joy ;)

The Queer Arts Festival is a non-profit society that relies on contributions from public, private and governmental funders to be able to bring audiences our cutting-edge programming. Full details on the 15/15 matching campaign and our donor group will be announced following this soft launch.
