Event description

Description

How do communities affect our sense of identity? How does identity impact our relationship to community? When does community strengthen our sense of self or self-expression? In a landscape of so-called ‘political correctness’, ‘censorship’ and no-platforming, the mainstream is constantly concerned with protecting the privileged and their ‘freedom of speech’. The need for trans and queer led communities is ever more urgent. Communities and gatherings of queer folk in all their diversity are more visible than ever – how is that affecting our sense of community and in turn our individual sense of identity? This workshop is an opportunity to come together and discuss our present relationship to community, as well as taking a look at some of those who have pioneered space for our communities and what might lie ahead.

Part of our Never Going Underground season, a year long programme of exhibitions, events and learning programmes exploring the past, present and future of LGBT+ activism.
