Auckland Pride at Q Theatre

Submissions are now open for Q's hand-picked Auckland Pride Festival 2018 programme.

Q Theatre has been part of Auckland Pride since we first hosted the Pride Gala back in 2013 and it just gets bigger and better every year.

We are putting out the call for submission for:

  • Ticketed Seasons 
    Loft and Vault performance spaces are ideal for a 4 or 5 night season. Seasons will be double or triple billed
  • Free Non-Ticketed Events & Performances 
    Lounge is an ideal exhibition area. It’s a visual/installation art space right on Queen Street - an open inviting area just waiting for Fringey ideas. 

Q’s annual Pride programme creates a platform for LGBTQI+ artists, celebrates the LGBTQI+ experience, explores the multiplicity of identity and creates opportunity for artists to present work in the festival context that Auckland Pride generates, in a meaningful and impactful way, one which speaks to the human experience.

Auckland Pride at Q is an inclusive, supportive and professional experience.
