LGBT Health and Wellbeing are working together with Scotland’s Urban Past and the Scottish Civic Trust Civic Connections project to produce a community map-making workshop in Edinburgh in February 2019. We actively want to invite the participation of Queer, Trans and Intersex People of Colour (QTIPOC) and a diverse range of LGBTQ+ people, including those with intersectional identities from Edinburgh and beyond. We are involving members of these communities in the planning of this event.
During the workshop participants will be invited to tell their stories, share significant, safe and welcoming places and services - past and present - and to make their own creative work about these. Material produced will be incorporated into a visual representation of Edinburgh which will function as an accurate, useful, customised map and guide to Edinburgh.
We are particularly looking for an artist with a strong understanding of LGBTQ+ intersectional issues and the potential needs of a diverse LGBTQ+ group. We would like you to work with us to prepare and deliver the workshop, and subsequently to respond to the work produced by participants and create a unified, visually engaging and functional map.
