Join us in the session: How to Queer a Painting, led by Sasha Coward, taking place Online, on Tuesday 8 February 10.00 – 11.30 am.

What makes an artwork queer, and how do you begin exploring art from a queer perspective? Researching LGBTQ+ experiences is notoriously challenging. Our stories are so often left out of the narrative of human history. Still whilst there is a lot of talk of the importance of inclusion, we often forget the most important part… How do you do it?!

This session will move beyond theoretical ideas and present a hands-on approach to exploring queer themes and stories in your collections.

Sacha Coward is a queer historian and tour guide who has worked in museums across the UK for over 10 years. In this session he will explore the process of finding queer narratives, and share practical skills and techniques he has picked up in his time working in the field.
