Waltham Forest is proud to be one of the London hubs for the National Festival of LGBT History Month for the first time in 2018. LGBT History Month and Waltham Forest Council will host a talk at Vestry House museum on Saturday 24th February with creator of the Pansy Project, Paul Harfleet and Joan Burnett from Liverpool Pride. They will be sharing their experiences alongside local artists and activists as we question how LGBT artists and residents can be best represented in the borough’s cultural offer.
In 2017 London Borough of Waltham Forest was awarded £1.36 million from the Great Places Scheme funded by Heritage Lottery Fund, working with Arts Council England and Historic England, to put arts, culture and heritage at the heart of our community over the next three years. The programme, called Creative Connections, kicks off with opportunities for all residents to help shape the programme through a series of conversations. These events and forums will cover a wide range of issues from the role which the arts can play in improving our quality of life to how we might use culture to build communities and how the design of our public spaces can contribute to our mental wellbeing.
