Venue address:

Publicity material for this event says:

This multimedia course will explore the potential of archives for queer writers. Using film, photography and other materials from various collections we will look at history as fertile ground for grappling with erasure, secrecy and marginalisation, as well as radical activism, politics and dramatic cultural change. We will write poems that ask a lot of questions: how does the construction of the archive relate to lived experience? What gets documented, by whom and why? How do we understand and complicate narratives around sex, sexuality and gender with perspectives on areas such as race, class and disability? How have practitioners across a range of disciplines creatively approached these questions? And what is it we wish to document for future generations?

Starts 25 January. 5 weekly sessions, 6:45pm – 8:45pm on Thursdays.
