Queering the City – Participant call out


Exciting opportunity to create 3 new artworks inspired by queer spaces! We are looking for participants to work with artist Lucy Hayhoe & Birmingham LGBT over two weekends in July to explore ideas around queer space and reimagine queer spaces of the future. Through a series of workshops and guided creation sessions participants will create telephone booth sized miniature queer spaces, designed for one person at a time. The finished artworks will be exhibited at Birmingham LGBT as part of Birmingham 2022 Festival.


No previous experience necessary, just a willingness to get stuck in, work collaboratively and maybe get a bit messy! Guidance, support and all materials and tools will be provided by the artist team.


This opportunity is for Birmingham based women, trans, gender non-confirming & non-binary folk, who are often excluded from commercial gay spaces. 


Local travel costs will be reimbursed, and refreshments provided.
