8380389-old-book-with-copy-space-and-inkstand-isolated-on-whiteOutStories Bristol is developing a new collaborative project with the University of Bristol and Bristol City Council. Continuing the research we started for our Revealing Stories exhibition, the project aims to gather the LGBT story of the Bristol area and create a permanent online archive. We are calling this project place and it should formally commence in October (provided the funding application is successful).

Know your place imageBetween now and October we are starting a number of mini-projects to establish small teams of  volunteers:

  • Research locations in central Bristol with LGBT associations.
  • Create a timeline of LGBT venues.
  • Interview trans people; identify past and present local trans groups.
  • Help Bristol’s LGBT groups collect and record their history.
  • Any other local LGBT topic that interests you, and you want to research!

This event is your opportunity to learn about this exciting new project and find out how you can get involved – oral history interviewing, research in local archives or online, helping digitize material for upload to our website.

Refreshments provided. To help with numbers for catering, please book on Eventbrite.
