Mapping Q

Mapping Q

Mapping Q is a series of virtual art workshops for Arizona LGBTQ+ youth ages 14-24. Participants explore topics of art-making, self-care and harm reduction.

During these virtual workshops we learn about LGBTQ+ artists and explore ideas like pride, radical self-care, identity and how to effectively complain (i.e., protest lack of positive representations of queer, BIPOC and disabled bodies in visual culture) through art making. We will build community, meet artists, and watch videos and art demonstrations. Mapping Q participants will work towards creating a work of art to submit for an exhibition, opening in August 2022 at the University of Arizona Museum of Art (participants are NOT required to submit art for the exhibition, but are highly encouraged to participate). All participants will receive a free art kit!

Workshops will meet virtually on Wednesdays, 4-6 p.m., from February 2 through March 2, 2022. After registering below, participants will receive a Zoom link for accessing the workshops.

Registration is open to all youth ages 14-24 residing in Arizona and is open until full. Please register by January 24, 2022 to ensure that your art kit arrives on time.


Mapping Q is made possible by generous support from the UArizona Institute for LGBT Studies and the UAMA’s Stanley Glickman Outreach Endowment.
