Event Details

Digital Indigiqueer is a collection of works by transgender Indigenous transmedia artists based in the so-called USA. While one goal was spotlighting and lifting artists in an often overlooked demographic, another was creating community and building networks between transgender artists. This iteration of Digital Indigiqueer is entirely trans masculine artists, which was unintentional but resulted in a great collection of artists working with digital tools and media arts.
