  • Intro by Abigail Ward

  • Presentations from volunteers on archival LGBT material they have unearthed and/or contributed to digital exhibition at Archives+
  • Presentations/snapshots of oral histories recorded by volunteers for the OUT! project
  • 'Pinning party' - volunteers are trained on how to pin items to our digital heritage map - everyone pins something

  • Bring a laptop (if possible) 
  • Book a place via Eventbrite

INFORMAL PRESENTATIONS WANTED

I am looking for 4 volunteers to share something with the group for 10 mins each. This could be some digitised material or a snippet of an oral history you have recorded. Or information about a personal project i.e. Drew's Mancunian Gay work or my Queer Noise project for Manchester District Music Archive. It will be totally informal, but if you fancied doing a visual presentation that would be great.

Hope to see you there!
