Queer Mountaineer Week

imagery for Queer Appalachia crafting

Queer Mountaineer Weekoccurs each fall, and is a time for celebration of Queer Appalachia culture. Discover how Appalachian maker culture has become another extractive economy just like coal. Appalachian art is an important export reaching an increasingly wide audience.

Learn about the history of Appalachian maker culture. Because Appalachians had to make everything they wanted (or else it didn't exist) function came before aesthetics every time.

Last year, we met with Queer Appalachia and shared work, including intricate detailed embroideries, hand carvings, zines and more.

Queer Mountaineer Week occurs each fall. Check back soon for more details about dates and events for Fall 2019.
