Running since March 2012, CUNTemporary has been listing London-based events, conferences, open calls and exhibitions related to queer and feminist politics and aesthetics. We aim to provide visibility also to events that might not be listed in popular press or which take place outside institutional parameters. If this sounds like something that you are organising and want to include it into our next newsletter which currently holds 6000+ members, then send us ONE LINK to by the 20th of each month to be considered for the following month’s calendar of events. All relevant events sent after that date will be featured on our social media pages – always free of charge!

You can also post your queer-feminist events/calls/announcements in CUNTemporary's Facebook Group.
