Queerdirect | Workshop in re-imagining the future of queer activism

 INFORMATION:
Presented by Arnolfini, UWE Fine Art & Queerdirect | Addressing the lack of, or imbalance of, LGBTQ+ representation within the art world, join Queerdirect in a workshop to create a space you’d like to see.

Join Queerdirect’s workshop in re-imagining the future of queer activism, institutional space and grass roots LGBTQ+ spaces.

The workshop will examine collaborative making through the production of an activism banner and group discussion centred around themes in Arnolfini’s Still I Rise exhibition. All materials will be provided.

Tickets are free but booking is essential.

Led by Gaby Sahhar and Lily Cheetah, Queerdirect grew out of the need for queer artists to have access to long-term support and a network to promote their work.

Queerdirect hold regular events and curate exhibitions around London and provide queer artists with a platform and support. Queerdirect is the UK’s first contemporary arts platform and project space dedicated to queer arts and artists.

Still I Rise: Feminisms, Gender, Resistance – Act 3 is a large-scale exhibition of international artists, highlighting the experiences of women and celebrating their triumphs – with an expanded programme of performances, screenings, workshops and talks filling Arnolfini through Autumn 2019.

There is wheelchair access throughout the building. The nearest parking spaces for blue badge parking is at the Grove car park.
