About SQUART:Short for Spontaneous queer art, SQUART was conceived by Laura Arrington, out of the desire to foster community and create work without preciousness.
SQUART’s format is simple, people show up at 6pm, break into teams and are given a list of criteria with two hours to make a piece. At 8pm whatever is made is performed! The work is then commented on by a panel of judges. It’s usually incredibly creative, inspiring, fun, and always bizarre.
SQUART is and has been supported by THEOFFCENTER, SomARTS, The Lab, The Garage, Headlands Center for the Arts, and The San Francisco Foundation
