Here are some snippets from the launch to inspire you to get down to Sheffield Hallam’s Cantor building, and if you are LGBT yourself, bring a childhood photo and Tom Dingley will take your picture to add to the growing archive of fabulous people for inclusion in future exhibitions. Studio slots available until 6pm.
As there’s nothing particular for Tom to read as we normally would do, we are launching with an exhibition at
The Heritage Gallery
Queen Anne Court,
Royal Naval College, Park Row
(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!
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 firstname.lastname@example.org
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
