Event description

Description

The aim of this project is to explore Kirklees from a LGBT+ perspective using psychogeographical techniques. Psychogeography is a creative and subversive way to walk around urban environments, exploring the relationship between place, emotion, and identity. During and after our walks, we will be collaborating with local artists to curate an exhibition that places LGBT voices at the centre of Kirklees.


If you have ever lived in Kirklees, have living memories of the area, and are on the broad LGBTQ rainbow, you would be very welcome to join us for one or more of our psychogeographical walks.
