Event description

Description

Does your community group or organisation want to explore the heritage of LGBT+ people and communities?

The Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) is committed to helping support the development of projects that investigate the richness and diversity of LGBT+ history and experience. We are running an evening of information and advice for anyone interested in applying for funding for an LGBT+ heritage-focussed project, or curious about the possibility of doing so.

There will be a series of short presentations exploring past and current projects, research resources and funding options, followed by a chance for more informal discussion and networking. Food and (non-alcoholic) drinks will be provided.
