28 Lessons I Was Never Taught: Section 28, Thirty Years On
- 14 July 2018, 2.30pm to 5.30pm
- Focal Point Gallery
Filmmaker Ed Webb-Ingall will facilitate a workshop looking at the legacy and impact of Section 28.* His new video installation at Focal Point Gallery, 'We Have Rather Been Invaded', will provide a starting point to reflect on the way that our experience in education has shaped our queer subjectivities. Together, we will produce a new audio work that will be played in the gallery at the end of the day.
Free, no experience necessary, all equipment and materials supplied. Open to anyone who identifies as LGBTQI* with a desire to collaborate and listen. We actively encourage people of all ages to attend. To attend, please book your free ticket here.
All events are mobility accessible. If you have any specific access requirements please do not hesitate to contact the gallery to how discuss how we can meet your needs.
*Section 28 of the 1988 Local Government Act stated that councils should not "intentionally promote homosexuality or publish material with the intention of promoting homosexuality" in its schools or other areas of their work. It was abolished in 2003 in England and Wales
