ARTIVISM 2021: Queering the Self

From September 24 to October 22, UBC Artivism engaged through the theme Queering the Self, which provided space for underrepresented voices from our community and beyond to explore the intersections of their identity through the lens of the digital.

Presented by UBC Arts and Culture District 2021 festival Artistic Director/Producer Bianca Santana, in partnership with the Exposure UBC student club team, this annual festival highlighted stories of resilience and student activist art that challenges dominant narratives through live performances, poetry, music and more. There was something for everyone; the events included a wide range of in-person and online activities.
