Q-Space was founded in Beijing in April 2016. It is a queer and feminist maker space located in a hutong, providing a learning space and community actions for change.
Vision, Mission, and Values
Q-Space is a grassroots community-maker space, which believes that embracing diversity is the key to solving social issues. Our vision is one where all people have access to the tools and resources to be able to create the change they would like to see in the world. Our space is open and embracing, focusing on mindful learning through building community by building bridges and sharing knowledge and skills. We focus particularly on the empowerment of women and the LGBTQ+ populations.
All our events are run by volunteers coming together to share skills with one another. We operate by a ‘pay as you feel’ donation policy to ensure that our events can remain accessible to as diverse set of people as possible. We also often provide food cooked by the community and sell things made within the community.
Below is a list and description of our regular events.
