LGBT + Heritage Discovery Day

Monday 23rd October 2017

LGBT+ Heritage Discovery Day

Date: Mon 23 October 2017  11:00 – 16:00

Location: London Metropolitan Archives, 40 Northampton Road, London, EC1R 0HB

Do you or your community have an LGBT+ heritage story that needs to be told? Where do you start? How can archives be useful? How do you put together a project that your audiences will find interesting and enjoyable, and that HLF might be able to fund?

HLF London and South East will answer these questions in partnership with the London Metropolitan Archives. Join us on this Discovery Day for:

•        tips and insights from existing HLF-funded LGBT+ projects, run by Duckie and Islington Council

•        a behind the scenes tour of LMA’s archive rooms

•        a workshop in which we’ll have a go at using material from LMA’s LGBT+ collections to develop a story and learning activity

•        an update from HLF on how to access support for funding applications

•        a light lunch and refreshments will be available

There will also be an opportunity to see LMA’s current exhibition: Life on the London Stage ,a glimpse into the challenges and joys of theatrical life in London since the days of Elizabeth I!
