Jul 8 @ 6:30 pm – 7:45 pm
The Harris LGBTQ Working Group @ Harris Museum, Art Gallery & Library

Every month the Harris  invites people from the LGBTQ community to join them for an early evening get-together to talk about and explore the Harris collections. It’s free to attend but please register at the booking link  (click here)

The group currently meets on the 2nd Wednesday of each month from 6.30pm.

It’s a really informal and friendly group. They are currently producing a trail of objects in the Harris collections which members of the group are interpreting from a personal, LGBTQ perspective. No experience of talking about art required!

They start by having a chat then  often take a look around the Harris – both in its galleries and using digital resources to explore objects in the stores. They think about objects through which  one can explore issues of gender, sexuality and identity, and how to unearth previously hidden (or ignored) LGBTQ stories. The group  also explores opportunities for bringing new queer perspectives to the collection.

Please note that the event does sometimes involve some walking around the galleries – nothing too strenuous!
