This is what happens when you drop in on an interesting building for open house: you get talking to one of the trustees, who happen to mention that one of their resident organisations are doing a book event for children, so you send an email, and have a meeting and suddenly someone is reading the book in a library!
I like the serendipity of how this happened. A semi staged version has also been produced for which the video is on its way, but here in the meantime is John Handscombe taking on clever advisors, selfish dukes and wily old women.
It’s the 1st of February, and the first day of LGBT History Month, so Tom Dingley has been to Lancaster and back in the day, to hang a selection of Outcome portraits on the very interestingly textured walls of Lancaster University Library.
The library’s ‘Magic Box’ that lets you flick through the book electronically (I want one!)
Anyone wanting to buy a copy after viewing the exhibition, Blackwells bookshop on campus has some in stock, if they run out you can order direct from us post free.
If you are in the area and would like to be part of the Outcome portfolio, with the chance of it being YOUR face in the next exhibition, Tom is having a studio day in the exhibition space on 15th February, the day the exhibition comes down. Contact him at tom[underscore]dingley[at]hotmail[dot]co[dot]uk or via twitter @OutcomeLGBT to book a slot.
Slightly smaller displays in Harrow Civic Centre in the room opposite the council chamber,(touring libraries from 6th February).
Thanks to Joan Redding for helping organise both of those.
You can still catch the exhibition at Horsham Capitol until the middle of the month too.
We are crowdfunding to pay for additional prints so that we can do things like this on a larger scale with 3 exhibitions of all the pictures at the same time (why not?!), and cover Tom’s expenses as he hares around the countryside putting prints onto interesting walls and taking photos. There are only a few days left, and we are a way off the target, so any help appreciated!
