Founded in 2004, Homotopia is a Liverpool based arts & social justice organisation making a cultural impact through art and activism. Our aim is to support and platform local, national and international LGBTQIA socially engaged artists and creatives. Every October/November we present HomotopiaFestival , featuring a variety of LGBTQIA art across multiple venues and outdoor spaces in the city. In addition to our festival, we have a year-round programme of artist development, public artworks and events.
Homotopia Festival is the UK’s longest running LGBTQIA arts and culture festival, In 2012 we became one of Arts Council England’s National Portfolio Organisations, and at the time, were the only dedicated LGBTQIA arts organisation to be recognised in this way. In the years that have followed Homotopia has achieved significant growth and development and we take pride in being at the forefront of combining creativity and social change for and in collaboration with our ever-expanding community.
Investing in the future of inspiring, challenging and diverse art is at the forefront of our drive as a cultural organisation in the city. Here are the different ways, alongside our festival, that we’re making an impact on local and national LGBTQIA culture and community.
