Queer collaborations

Sunday 19th june

Fiorence Okoye discusses her work investigating how queer and anti-colonial methods can increase access to museum collections.


Where might natural history and the therapeutic meet for queer audiences? How do we take discussions from within the community to the Museum? What is needed to create equitable spaces for challenge and co-creation?

Inspired by conversations with the queer community over the course of creating an LGBTQ tour at the Natural History Museum, this talk from Florence Okoye will cover all these questions and more including tips for facilitation, getting people paid and how inclusive methods can be a means of empowerment for often marginalised and ignored communities.

This event is part of the Great Exhibition Road Festival: Trailblazers.

Join us in South Kensington this summer to enjoy a weekend of free events for all ages and celebrate trailblazing ideas in science and the arts.

Enjoy hands-on workshops, fascinating talks, performances and installations from museums, research and culture organisations in South Kensington, including Imperial College London, the Natural History Museum, Royal College of Music, Science Museum, V&A and many more!
