Event description

Description

“AIDS is not over and neither is AIDS in the past” (Sarah Schulman). That past resonates through our present – through relationships, sexual cultures and sexuality, through art and culture, and through experiences of stigma, fear and guilt. This event will draw powerfully on excerpts from oral histories of HIV/AIDS affected people, including nurses, curated by researchers Tommy Dickinson and George Severs.

This event is part of the AIDS Histories and Cultures Festival, led by the Raphael Samuel History Centre.

Accessibility

Our venue is fully wheelchair accessible. We can offer large print copies of presentations if requested at least a week before the event. Assistance dogs are welcome.

This event will be live subtitled with Speech-to-text reporting. There is also a hearing loop in the lecture room, and portable hearing loops are available if requested in advance.

Part of the AIDS Histories & Cultures Festival

Exploring histories and cultures of AIDS through workshops, film screenings, walks, talks, and performance

How has AIDS been experienced, represented, and remembered? With workshops, film screenings, walks, talks, and performance, this Festival explores some of the histories and cultures of AIDS from the 1980s to the present day. The Festival takes place across London throughout July 2018 and is open to all. It is convened by the Raphael Samuel History Centre with partners across heritage, academic, and charitable sector organisations.
