The Queer Choir Amsterdam F.A.Q.
We are an artist initiative of queer qties who sing.
We want to bring together a group of queer people to restore a sense of community and belonging in a time where access to safe spaces of solidarity and celebration of self is limited and also denied. We believe queer marginalised people are in need of these spaces, and communities now more than ever and see it as our responsibility to navigate and create those opportunities as practitioners and fellow members of the queer community. With a keen urge to communicate our care and translate it into voices and songs that celebrate resilience, joy, and reflect this onto spaces both public and domestic. Voices matter and need to be heard to know that one is never alone.
The rehearsals will take place at one of our studio’s located in Amsterdam. You will receive the address, dates and times after you’ve signed up with the choir. You can do that by sending us an e-mail or dm us on Instagram.
Yes! Our choir director is Vera Morais. You can find more information about her in the ‘about’ section of this website.
We work together to brainstorm and craft narratives that are of interest to us individually and as a group.
Not at all! We want to encourage everybody to join, singing experience or not! But experience is great!
We prioritize queer people from BIPOC backgrounds and/or differently abled persons and/or neurodivergent persons in search of community.
You can always DM us on instagram, or e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Although we are very flattered with your curiousity, perhaps this is not the choir for you right now. But please contact us if you feel you’re an ally or want to help out one way or another.
Note: BIPOC people and people with disabilities will be in preference and are encouraged to apply. The building where our studio is located is only wheelchair accessible to the ground floor, and unfortunately there are some steps to the studio floor. BUT Incase wheelchair accessibility is needed we will do our utmost best to find an accessible rehearsal space.
Yes! Tell us how you would like to help out. Think of things like, making food, costume design, stage building. Please contact us by DM or e-mail email@example.com
We hope to pay for all of this through funding.
In 2021 we received a project subsidie from AFK and a grant from Mama Cash.
