Event description

Description

Friends of the Joiners Arms invites you to join us in the next phase of our campaign: to establish a venue under queer community control on the site of the Joiners Arms.

We are holding two meetings to allow the maximum number and range of people to attend, but feel free to attend both!

Building on the legacy of the Joiners Arms, we believe there’s no reason a venue can’t throw banging parties whilst also engaging in grassroots politics. A new pub must be more inclusive of all sections of the LGBTQI+ community, more empowering of workers, and more responsive to pressing social issues than venues have been previously.

We want everyone from the community to have ownership over the direction this exciting project takes. These meetings will be facilitated and involve break-out groups, discussions, idea-sharing. The aim is to create a strong, diverse, welcoming organisation which will undertake everything needed to create a queer pub run by the community, for the community!

Hackney Showrooms is fully accessible, but please get in touch with us if you have any questions or would like any clarity.

BSL - if you require a BSL interpreter, please let us know when booking your ticket and we will arrange this! The deadline for confirming BSL interpreters is Friday 23rd February, but if you are booking a ticket after this we will do everything we can to make arrangements.

Childcare/travel costs - If you require support with childcare or travel costs in order to attend either/both meetings, please let us know when booking your ticket (by adding information into 'Accessibilty Requirements').

WE LOVE YOU!
