OutStories Bristol is preparing an exhibition on lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans life to be held at Bristol’s M Shed museum in February 2013. We are holding two open-door workshops at M Shed on Sunday 2 September.

11:30am to 12:45pm: Volunteer information session

If you would like to help create the exhibition, come to this session to hear what’s involved and what you could do. We need volunteers to help with:

  • Designing the exhibition
  • Getting people to attend our events
  • Organising publicity
  • Organising supporting events
  • Raising money
  • Research
  • Staging the exhibition
  • Working with the designers
  • Writing leaflets
  • Writing the exhibition panels.
2pm to 4pm: Content Workshop

In the afternoon we are holding a workshop to look at what should be in the exhibition. We need a range of views to ensure a good balance and nothing is missed.

Key topics:

  • Family, children and extended family
  • Health
  • Identity and acceptance
  • Information and communication
  • Law and Policing
  • Moral and religious attitudes
  • Politics and activism
  • Pride
  • Relationships (lovers/partners)
  • Relationships with media
  • Socialising
  • Trans life
  • Women’s movement/Feminism
