Q Art Project

Q Art publication was launched on 12 December 2022 at the Youth Resource Centre in a safe and celebratory gallery setting to an audience of 45 community members including young artists, peers and family members, key service providers; Headspace Werribee, Drummond Street Queerspace, Anglicare Werribee LGBT Navigator, First Nations led Little Rocket Publishing, Youth Projects and wider Wyndham City Council Youth Services, Counselling and Mental Health team.

Q Art Project responds to rainbow youth identifying the power in being seen and visible, with little representation in the western region to connect with. Q Art project brings the creative works together of rainbow youth to share voice, story, pride, strength and experience.

Q program young producers approached the work with three aims:

  • To be a welcoming space of creative submissions for rainbow youth through art in as many forms as possible; including drawings, paintings, digital art, poetry, short stories,comic make up and clothing
  • To achieve a powerful, diverse and intersectional collection of art forms created by and for Queer youth 12-25 across all identities, faith, and abilities
  • To be able to share the beauty, power and rich identify of being who we are in our loved communities.

A note to the reader from Q program’s young producers:

‘We hope that you enjoy this art book, that you feel seen, heard and the art supports yours and our collective belonging and understanding. There are many opportunities for you. So let your voice be heard where you feel safe to do so and advocate, that’s how this book and project happened;through a conversation.”

We wish to pay respect to our Rainbow elders and leaders who paved the way for all of us as a community.

Publication is printed and designed by Little Rocket.

Q Art Project launch supported by Engage Grant Program, Department of Families, Fairness and Housing.
