About This Project

De La Warr Pavilion

The group received a guided tour of  ‘Still I Rise: Feminisms, Gender, Resistance’ at the De La Warr Pavilion. The exhibition explored the history of resistance, and the links between groups fighting prejudice and campaigning for greater equality.

In response to the exhibition, the group created a number of zines in a workshop run by artist Linda Stupart. These are small-circulation, self-published works of original or appropriated texts and images, usually reproduced via photocopier. The content is created on a single page which can then be cut and folded to produce a multi-page booklet. Zines are the product of either a single person or of a very small group and are often used by campaigners, activists and counter-cultures.

The zines the group created can be viewed in the online gallery here.

The Keep

The group visited The Keep to view material relating to LGBT history, and see how this has been captured in the archives.

This will be the permanent home for a series of audio recordings generated by the project. Young people from the group interviewed LGBTQ individuals from older generations, ensuring their stories will be preserved in East Sussex Record Office’s Archives.
