Preview Art Exhibition - This Weekend!

Publish Date: 23/07/2013

The Lesbian & Gay Foundation's 'Can You Hear Me?' preview exhibition will launch this Friday 27th July at 4pm at The Lesbian & Gay Foundation.

The event is a taster for our main 6-day exhibition, launching on 20th August and will give visitors the opportunity to speak to participants and see our progress.

'Can You Hear Me?' is all about challenging the stigma and discrimination faced by lesbian and bisexual women with a mental illness, by encouraging conversations between those who have and haven’t experienced mental health problems, in order to challenge myths and misconceptions.

The project participants have created their very own kitchen spaces, which reflect their experience and will be the setting for these conversations to happen. At this event, you’ll be able to see 5 of our final 14 kitchen spaces, with furniture, decorations and sound, all created by our participants in order to tell their story.

It’s a completely unique opportunity to understand and change the stigma and discrimination, faced by this group of women.

The event is free and we welcome both individuals and groups to come along during the following times:

·         Friday 26th July 4pm – 8pm

·         Saturday 27th July 1pm – 6pm

Perhaps you and your group or organisation would like to arrange to come along? For more information, call us on 0845 3 30 30 30 or visit www.lgf.org.uk/canyouhearme.
