Artist and participant callout for new LGBTQ+ exhibition

The Point Eastleigh and Eastleigh Pride are collaborating on an exhibition and collection of stories from Eastleigh’s LGBTQ+ community.

The project, entitled A Gay Ol’ Time, will reflect upon the last 70 years as hugely significant for LGBTQ+ people, prompted by the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.

Curated by The Point’s Women Leaders South West participant Amber Weyman and supported by Arts Council England, the project will consist of a series of public workshops, followed by an exhibition that will open in September for Eastleigh Pride.

Story-gathering workshops will take place on 23 and 30 July, and 4 and 9 August. The exhibition will run from Saturday 10 September until Saturday 22 October in The Point Eastleigh.

Amber Weyman said: “We would be interested in hearing from anyone who might be interested in contributing to the project and telling their story. Specifically we are also looking for a visual artist to help shape the exhibition and final work, particularly encouraging those who identify as part of the LGBTQ+ community.

“We also welcome applications from workshop facilitators in addition to any other creatives, sound designers, musicians, spoken word performers, and artists from any marginalised backgrounds.”

If you'd like to find out more about contributing your story or any other aspect of the project, please email gina.thorley@eastleigh.gov.uk
