Bent Art

Sorely missed in 2020, Bent On Art: Kootenay Queer & Trans Art Festival returns for 2021 in an online format. Join us virtually for a series of events designed to promote the work of LGBTQ+ artists in the Kootenays (and across British Columbia) while creating educational opportunities, fostering community connection & promoting resilience through the arts. The festival was founded by Samonte Cruz in 2018 & is now delivered in partnership with Samonte Cruz Studios and the West Kootenay Regional Arts Council.
