What’s new on PROPSLIST:
Submit your own project if:
You are an organizer or maker who wants more people to learn about your projects. You are an individual that would like to offer their knowledge and skills to share with others. You are working in media and can offer your voice and access to highlight and support others. Your publications, conferences, festivals, competitions have an open call for submissions. Your space or venue hosts events and people can contact you to play/perform/exhibit there.
PS: We know that it is not safe to be out for everyone. You can submit anonymously and we won’t share any information with third parties.
Pick your category
introducing – show us what you’re working on
This is for you if you have created something that you want other people to know about. Could be your band, your zine, an exhibition, a performance piece, your shop, a festival, a cake, a mixtape, a book you’ve published, a regular event, your group, collective or organization, etc.
skill sharing – offer your skills to help out others in their projects
This is for you if you are interested in sharing some of your skills, creativity or talents and want to learn through working with and by supporting others.
calls – you have a call and are looking for submissions
This is for you if you run a zine, a blog, a festival, have a little shop, etc. and would like for people – maybe from outside your usual bubble – to submit their work to you.
media multipliers – you are part of or work for a media outlet
This is for you if people can pitch their ideas, projects or work to you, because you are looking for interesting things to report about and want to elevate and support queer artists.
hosts – you have a space for shows, exhibitions, djs, workshops, guests, etc.
This is for you if people can contact you, because they want to organize something in your city/location and you want to elevate and support people that might not have built up a big network of their own just yet and/or you want for yours to grow.
