Work on the Mapping LGBT+ Bristol project began on 26th September with a workshop involving Josie McLellan, Nate Eisenstadt and Mike Jones (University of Bristol), Julian Warren (Bristol Record Office), Peter Insole (Bristol City Council), and members of OutStories Bristol.
Facilitated by Nate, the workshop was an opportunity for the key people to meet one another, set out the project aims and how we collaborate, clarify roles and responsibilities, and think through the process of how we collect, research and upload material to online platforms.
We are now developing teams of people to work together on the various aspects of the project: oral history, research, data collation and management, publicity, etc.
Come and join us! Everyone welcome.
Mapping LGBT+ Bristol is funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council.
