West Northamptonshire Council are looking for submissions for a new exhibition at Towcester Library scheduled for February 2022. The exhibition will run at Towcester Library for the whole of February, which is LGBTQ+ History Month.
LGBTQ+ History Month is an important time to reflect on what the queer community has gone through and a chance to celebrate where we are. For a smaller community like Towcester, the visibility and activity of the queer community still has a long way to go. We hope that this event can highlight the creativity of the LGBTQ+ community, making the members of it feel seen and giving them space to express themselves.
The theme is LGBTQ+ History and Pride. We welcome submissions from members or allies of the LGBTQ+ community.
We are happy to receive original work in any medium: painting, drawing, photography, textile, short story, poetry, etc. It is free to submit, and people will be able to retrieve their submissions after the exhibition ends.
Submissions to be sent to: email@example.com OR bring/send submissions to Towcester Library, The Forum, Towcester, NN12 6AD.
Due to safeguarding, submissions from under 18s will be automatically anonymised. Artists 18 years old and above should let us know if they wish to remain anonymous. Deadline for submissions is: 28/01/2022
