2018 & 2019

New Queers on the Block (produced by Marlborough Productions) primarily champions and supports migrant, working-class, PoC, disabled and unemployed artists who identify as LGBTQ+. As such, the programmes are presented in partnership with local LGBTQ+ groups, activists and venue partners who have adapted programming to be more inclusive of experimental work by artists who identify within the broad umbrella that is queer identity. As part of New Queers on the Block, Marlborough Productions commissioned Local Ambassadors to establish better connections - and more fluid conversations - between LGBTQ+ artists working across the UK and local queers and audiences.
