About this event
Join to learn and take a look through the role of LGBTQ+ people and our fashions through the ages to modern day in a talk and discussion with Chris Hunt.
Freelance Curator, Producer and PR Chris Hunt has worked in Arts, Culture and Lifestyle for 25 years around the world having left school as a teenager and been embraced by the world of Fashion since the 90’s. His recent work on the National Museums Scotland Body Beautiful Exhibition exploring Diversity is currently on tour around the UK.
Living and working in Tayside, he moved his Scotland Re:Design platform for Fashion & Design to Dundee during lockdown, opening a Fashion Festival at V&A Dundee in November 2021, with a Pop-Up at the Gather Space in Overgate, Grants to industry to create Fashion portfolio work, and events across Dundee & Glasgow fundraising and providing work for over 200 creative professionals.
Welcome to the stage, OutFest!
Shaper/Caper and Dundee Pride present a pure massive celebration for LGBTQ+ History Month! This February will be chockablock with creative events, workshops and discussions that explore what it's like to be a queer person in Dundee right now.
We’re collaborating with some absolutely fabulous local partners to brighten up your February, including V&A Dundee, DCA, DJCAD and many many more! From pop-up performances to vogue workshops, employability talks for the creative industries to our Battle of the Icons TikTok challenge, there are plenty of opportunities to get involved.
We’ll also be kick-starting our brand new community disco, Discotheque (just like a roller disco without those pesky skates!) and launching the new-look version of our magazine show The In/Out Crowd featuring some wonderful guests!
