I was commissioned by Pedestrian Charity Leicester as part of the children in need produce and progress programme to work with Leicester LGBT Centre’s First Out group: “a social and support group for young people aged 13-15 who identify anywhere under the LGBT+ umbrella or are questioning their sexuality or gender identity”.

 

I delivered creative workshops with Jenny Hibberd and the young people to create artwork and music to be installed and performed at Leicester Pride Festival 2018.

 

Over the sessions, we co-created a patchwork unity quilt, rainbow collage tree and a selfie frame.  The crafted “Los Queerdos” tent was a colourfully decorated, safe space including rainbow body and face painting, acoustic performers, sheet music sing-a-longs, musical jams, selfie opportunities and the ‘positivitree’ where people could hang up their positive thoughts.
