Re-booting the Arts

Re-booting arts

Much attention has been directed towards the hospitality sector, and rightly so given its paramount importance to the whole of Central London.

The businesses the bars and eateries serve however, have been very much engaged in their own day-to-day struggle for survival. Read More

London's Rainbow Crossings

Rainbow Crossing

Rainbow Crossings have been popping up all over London's roads over the last two years as a way to celebrate LGBT+ residents, workers, and visitors.

With Pride Month and the lost Pride season of 2020 long over, the London LGBT Forums Network have been researching which London Boroughs and Authorities have installed the crossings and where.

Freelands Foundation

Freelands Foundation

Freelands Foundation announces the award of £1.27m in grants to three organisations promoting racial inclusion through art education: Iniva, in London; Nottingham-based New Art Exchange; and Create London.

The £1.27m represents the first round of a total commitment of £3m and is the first step in a bold new plan of action by the Foundation to address the issue of racial inequality in the visual arts. 

Additionally, the Foundation has pledged to commit 15% of all future grants to initiatives with specific targets to promote the involvement of Black and ethnic minorities in the visual arts.

Community Partnerships

Outings in Art has formed a link with British Land’s Regent’s Place development. As part of Regent’s Place's commitment to diversity and inclusion, they actively support Regent’s Pride LGBTQ+ staff network [RPN].

We will be developing joint events with the RPN as soon as the current health situation is over.

Our expanded community partnerships now also include the Camden People’s Theatre and we are currently working on a joint workshop theatre piece with them and MOSAIC LGBT Youth Centre.

We continue to offer advice and support to our friends at the wonderful Arts Project and their major annual LGBTQ+ art exhibition ‘Loudest Whispers’, which this year is at its traditional home of St Pancras Conference Centre plus a new satellite venue courtesy of Old Diorama Arts Centre.

Write an Open Letter to Queer Britain

Open letters

Throughout history, the experiences of LGBTQ+ people have been erased, overlooked or marginalised. Queer Britain want future generations to see themselves. History does not live in dusty archives, it is alive in us all in the here and now.

In partnership with Levi’s® and Post Office, members of the LGBTQ+ communities and allies are invited to write an open letter to Queer Britain. These will live in their collection and will record and preserve valuable accounts of what it means to be LGBTQ+ in Britain today.

Each letter will be a valuable asset helping to build a narrative that truly represents the diversity, resilience and beauty of the UK’s LGBTQ+ people. After the campaign, the letters will be studied by historians at Goldsmith's and Kent State Universities as part of their joint research project, 'Queer Pandemic.''They may also be used in books and exhibition.

Share your memory, and say how you are feeling. Share your hopes and dreams or even a piece of advice. Every story is important. Queer Britain want to read yours, so get writing! (Postage is free)
