Outcome Launch Information

We are Launching OUTCOME: LGBT  Portraits by Tom Dingley on 10th October.

As there’s nothing particular for Tom to read as we normally would do, we are launching with an exhibition at

The Heritage Gallery 2016-08-23-14-28-38
Queen Anne Court,
University Greenwich,
Royal Naval College, Park Row
SE10 9LS
(It is a little tricky to find, but it’s the block opposite the CHAPEL going  towards the river, on your left as you come from Cutty Sark, then, inside the arched bit shown here you turn left)
Nearest station Cutty Sark (DLR) or Greenwich (Southern); loads of buses.

The University Gallery Manager, Alumni Office, IT staff, LGBT Staff Network, and Students’ Union LGBT group have all been amazingly generous with time and space and organisation and have got involved in the project with enthusiasm. We are very grateful!lgbt-uni-logolgbt-uni-logo

The exhibition will be open Monday 10th October 10-4, and Tuesday 11th (Coming Out Day) to Friday 14th 10-5. Everybody welcome, and we are encouraging school parties, so if that might apply to you get in touch!

Tuesday 11th (Coming out Day) and Thursday 13th: Outcome photographer, Tom, will be hosting pop-up studio days if you would like to be part of Outcome. If you are LGBT and would like to be photographed do get in touch to suggest a time. Each person will get 20 minutes – so please come ready to be photographed and ideally with a copy of a clear childhood photo of you) before the age of 15, and by yourself please. Book your slot by contacting Tom: @OutcomeLGBT  – or tom_dingley@hotmail.co.uk
Wednesday 12th 1-2pm a free public Q&A panel about coming out featuring contributors to the project and the Students’ Union LGBT group (we haven’t finalised who yet). We think there will be tea and biscuits after. There are other events just for staff and students.

Arachne Press Cover Artists’ Exhibition

We put a lot of thought into our covers, and we really appreciate our cover artists so we decided to give them a bit of an extra thank you, and celebrate their talents with an exhibition.

Running from 1st-12th October, in the Long Gallery at Lauderdale House, Waterlow Park, Highgate Hill, N6 5HG the exhibition is open by appointment (they have lots of classes and meetings booked into the long gallery); just ring 0208 348 8716 to find out when you can get in – don’t be shy, they are very friendly and enthusiastic. Unfortunately it’s a listed building  so althoguh the long gallery is absolutely gorgeous, it isn’t accessible by wheelchair (we tried to find somewhere that was, but costs were utterly prohibitive).
