February 2023 saw the launch event for the LGBTQ+ Positive Voices @ Goldsmiths Library project take place.
During this event we shared the background to the project, plans for future workshops in the coming year and for the exhibition on campus in 2024.
We will be running two more workshops along the same lines in 2023, on April 20th and August 10th. Booking is now open for the April event at: https://libcal.gold.ac.uk/calendar/SCA
These workshops will give participants the opportunity to find out about the LGBTQ+ Positive Voices project and explore Goldsmiths Special Collections & Archives to create their own pieces for a physical exhibition focused on “creative works that are a positive reflection of being an LGBTQ+ person.”
Attendees of the first event are also welcome to attend these upcoming workshops.
The workshops are open to all members of the LGBTQ+ community (not only those either working or studying at Goldsmiths). And if you know of any individuals or groups outside of Goldsmiths University community who would be interested in participating in this project, please let them know about it.
The exhibition at Goldsmiths University is expected to launch in February 2024, and the deadline for submissions is 20th October 2023. Details of how to submit work to the exhibition will be shared soon.
Contributions for the physical exhibition are also welcome from people who have not attended any of the workshops.
If you would like further information about the LGBTQ+ Positive Voices @ Goldsmiths project, or need support to find materials in Goldsmiths Special Collections & Archives for a piece you are creating, please contact email@example.com
We look forward to receiving your contributions to this project.
