QMAD, Queens Media Arts Development, is under the direction of artist, Hector Canonge, who launched ITINERANT in Queens in 2011.  Canonge explains that ITINERANT is “the first program for performance art in this borough,” and that he “wants to introduce audiences to this art form as well as to create dialogue and exchange among artists coming from all over to the festival. ITINERANT started as a mini-festival with handful of local artists presenting their live performances at Crossing Art Gallery, I wanted to create the same in larger scale in NYC." Canonge adds that the experience has been an incredible challenge. "To be able to collaborate with organizations and galleries in the five boroughs, to have their support and trust that I could carry such enterprise has been a major incentive in organizing the event.”  QMAD, under the leadership of Canonge, presents the monthly LGBT film series CINEMAROSA, the annual program Framing AIDS, and the monthly art series A-Lab Forum.
