Featuring Matthew Dennis and  Eryn McDonald  the panel will give each speaker the opportunity to talk for fifteen minutes and will have a particular focus on the challenges and opportunities which young queer artists face.

Matthew Dennis

Matthew Dennis is an artist from Dartmoor, in the South West of England. Although his formal education was photographic, his work is now pushing out of the constraints of the frame into more experimental and sculptural techniques.  Matthew’s work is consistently autobiographical, pulling inspiration from different aspects of his life.
He is a curator and co-artistic director of Stoggaf art collective, which champions emerging queer artists and performers, through compelling and provocative exhibitions and events, whilst providing a safe space for all.


Eryn McDonald

Eryn McDonald is an interdisciplinary artist driven by political rage, love for community, and a burning desire to infiltrate capitalism. They have a practice based in dance, drama and poetry, and have a degree in dance and drama from Bath Spa University. Their writing currently focuses around queerness, identity and politics, and they are currently in the process of co-creating a spoken word theatre show with poet Aish Humphreys. Earlier this year they were commissioned by Apples & Snakes to create a 1 minute poetry video for the Future Voices programme, and they are the creator and director of a short documentary called Queer Is A Tender Feeling. They are interested in creating work that crosses genres and disciplines, asks slightly uncomfortable questions, and has a positive social impact.
