artistry as activism
The QUEENS COLLECTIVE is a group of artists working together and running a community art space in Marrakech, Morocco.
In the space we offer a platform for multidisciplinary artists, both emerging and established to explore, exchange and create work.
We bridge international and local artists by offering a series of different residencies for Moroccans and foreigners.
We foster artistic growth and collaboration in a creative and supportive space.
We believe in the transformative power of the arts and artistic exploration to foster care, lightness, empowerment, life and beauty while integrating freedom and responsibility.
Queens Collective stands for gender equality, female empowerment and the engagement of vulnerable communities locally through cultural activism.
Queens Collective is founded and run by artists of different backgrounds, promoting social transformation through artistic, cultural, and educational programs.
The core of Queens Collective is communal development through four principles embodied in our work:
cultural and social awareness, shared responsibility, creativity and local networks development.
