Qtopia questions and subverts normativities, power structures and oppressive systems. The festival wants to show a reality that has infinitely more varieties than the simplistic and binary version we commonly face. In addition to the art exhibitions, Qtopia is also a platform for artworks and artists that relate to queer subjects. Lastly, the festival wants to create a momentum of interaction and dialogue – Ā for people from Nijmegen and beyond, for anyone who is interested in those themes.
