This artist residency is for artists who work at the intersection of queer life and ecology. The residency provides a lens to examine how we might wish to understand relations with one another and other-than-human world.

As biodiversity loss, climate change, and widespread pollution radically reconfigure the environments we live in, things are not only getting worse, they are also getting weirder. Looking to novel organisms, chemical contaminants, and strange bedfellows, we will draw inspiration from queer theory to re-examine ecological relations; breaking down some of the received understandings of the supposed ‘naturalness’ of heteronormativity, while also considering how the field of queer ecologies upholds queer ways of life as strategies for survival and thriving.
