Peace and LGBT+ Communities @ Park Lounge, Charles Wilson Building

Following the 2019 theme “peace, reconciliation and activism” Grant Denkinson (David Wilson Library) will be joined by three guests who have been working for peace in various ways: Hannah Brock, Symon Hill and Zina Zelter. This will be a question and answer style session. We’ll start with some questions about how our guests have experienced how peace building and LGBT+ life have interacted and we’ll welcome more questions from the room.

Drawing Larry @ The Sparrowhawk Pub

2019 heralds 50 years since the Stonewall riots in New York that kicked off the Gay Liberation Movement. This LGBT History Month, aptly themed ‘Peace, Reconciliation, Activism’, we bring you a series of life drawing events celebrating the advent of Pride, starting with Drawing Larry at The Sparrowhawk.

Larry Marks is Peace. He is the Age of Aquarius, and will be modelling nude to the spirit of the flower child era.

All abilities welcome, relaxed and informal. Drinks and food available at the bar. 18+

Materials provided, kindly sponsored by Great Art. Get 20% off further materials when you book with us online (conditions apply).

This Is Who I Am
by ice&fire Theatre Company

“Then they separated us. We tried to say no, we applied for asylum as a couple. They say we don’t have any civil evidence that we are a couple. And we’re like – how can we show you any civil evidence if homosexuality is forbidden in my country?”

This is Who I presents first-hand accounts of LGBT+ people seeking asylum in the UK about their experiences in their own country and on arrival in the UK, addressing the particular challenges they face. These accounts are read by members of the Actors for Human Rights Network, an outreach project run by ice&fire who are a London based theatre company exploring human rights stories through performance.

“We put human rights at the core of everything we do to make accessible theatre for a wide range of audiences across the UK.”

This event is produced in partnership with The Peace Museum in Bradford and is presented during LGBTQ+ History month 2019 as part the museum’s current project Peace OUT exploring Peace and LGBTQ+ activism which will result in an exhibition launched during Bradford Pride 2019. #peaceout19

This event will be chaired by Kala Sangam’s Alex Croft and will be followed by a post-show discussion. There will also be a short introduction to The Peace Museum and their Peace OUT project by project manager Rosanne Robertson.

From Spring 2019 the majority of performances at Kala Sangam are now Pay What You Decide, which means you don’t have to pay until after you have seen a show!
