Slut Island Festival 2020
This is the application form for artists who wish to participate in the 7th edition of Slut Island Festival; an initiative that exists to offset underrepresentation and tokenization of marginalized artists in the mainstream festival landscape. The festival takes place in Tio’tia:ke, unceded Mohawk territory (Montreal, QC) in July 2020. Slut Island specifically encourages the participation of people who identify as queer, QTBIPOC, femme, LGBTQQ2SIPA+, trans*, gender nonconforming, gender fluid, sex workers, (dis)abeled*, women or anyone living on the margins seeking a supportive environment to showcase their work. Your applications will be reviewed by a board of 8 - 10 curators; please include all the information you’d like them to know about you and your artistic practice by answering the questions thoroughly! You will learn the results of your application by mid April. The curatorial process is quite lengthy, thank you for being patient about our timeline. We look forward to learning about your work and thank you for your interest in Slut Island Festival 2020!

14. The festival is held in wheelchair accessible venues (there is a possibility that 1/8 shows will not be due to availability but we are trying to avoid this) with active listeners/harm reduction staff on site. Both alcoholic and non alcoholic beverages are available. We have Naloxone kits onsite with trained administers. Most (but not all) of the programming is 18+.
