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!

The launch party and private view is invitation only – Contributors, Arachne Friends and Funders – you will be invited automatically; apologies to everyone else, but do please come to the exhibition, or the other events around the launch – which are…
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.
The book will be on sale throughout the week in the Gallery (whenever we are there, which will be most of the time) and at Greenwich Waterstones, next to Cutty Sark Station. You can of course also buy it from us via our web shop 

Success!

We’ve raised (after fees) £2884 for Outcome, which should cover our printing costs for both the book and the launch exhibition.

You can see what it will look like here
We are inviting everyone who helped to show their colours:

I backed Outcome copy so if you see this on someone’s email signature or website, you’ll know they are friendly helpful kind generous people!

And everyone who is IN the book we are asking to also show their colours:

Stretching the #Outcome Crowd Fund target

6 days to go and already we’ve reached our crowd fund target. Tom (our photographer) and I have had a conversation about what we can reasonably stretch to.

SO feeling rather cheeky, but we’ve costed out printing up and mounting A1 copies of 80  for the launch exhibition, many of which would be reused in the touring exhibition.

Shockingly wide variation depending on how we approach it, but we are confident we can do it to the quality we need for £840.

Rather than just sit back we would like go all out to see if we can reach this additional target in the next 6 days!

If you would like to help us reach this further target the crowdfund is here.

Lots of treats available.

Outcome Kickstarter crowdfund live

Want to help create a little bit of LGBT history?

We are fundraising for the money to produce our first photographic book, Outcome.

9781909208261 

If you would like to help, go to our Kickstarter campaign and pledge us some money.

If you haven’t any money, but you have a studio space we can use, an exhibition space we can exhibit in, or you are LGBT yourself and would like to be involved in the project, that all helps too.

The most immediately obvious thing is to pre-order a copy of the book, you can ONLY do this via the crowd fund, as, if we don’t raise the money we can’t do the book, and that’s that.

However we are also offering photo shoots with photographer Tom Dingley, signed copies of Tom’s brilliant shot of Peter Tatchell

Peter Tatchell

invitations to the launch, and an array of Arachne Press’ other titles. We hope to have other options available soon to entice you. The crowd fund ends on March 17th.

 

Thanks!

Outcome in Lewisham

An opportunity to see an exhibition of some of the photographs that will be part of Outcome, our first Photographic book. If it takes your fancy, you can get involved by being the subject of a portrait (if you are LGBT, obviously) or by helping us raise the money to print the book, or by offering studio or exhibition space.
