What will the workshop involve?

No prep or materials are required. Facilitated by influential writer and performer, Dean Atta, and experienced artist filmmaker and facilitator, Annis Joslin, activities will include creative writing and photography. The session will provide guidance, advice and ideas for professionals working with young people who want to raise awareness of and explore LGBTQ+ issues. Participants will also be given access to a range of new resources to help them plan their own lessons or activities.

Many other organisations from across the city are also involved including local schools, Brighton Museum & Art Gallery, Queer in Brighton and Allsorts Youth Project.
