‘From Bedroom to Battleground’ has been created by members of Project Indigo, a local LGBTQI+ youth group run by Off Centre, a mental health and wellbeing charity. Facilitated by artist Liv Wynter, this exhibition shares the voices of Project Indigo members, who hope that by opening up about their personal stories, they can help teach people what it’s like to be young and LGBTQI+ in Hackney.

The ‘Out and About’ display is a collaborative wallpaper design project between artist Angela Groundwater and Out and About, an LGBTQI+ group for people aged 50 and over. Hidden within the traditional wallpaper pattern are the stories of five group members, told through objects of personal significance to them. The custom-made wallpaper weaves a narrative out of illustrations, inspired by art workshops to create the piece looking at the unique challenges older people face 51 years on from the partial decriminalisation of homosexuality in the UK.
