TODAY at B RIGHT ON LGBT+ Community Festival: Community HIV Quilt Care Workshop

Besi Besemar April 14, 2019

The B RIGHT ON LGBT+ Community Festival are holding a Stitch, Care & Share Community HIV Quilt Care Workshop  today, Sunday, April 15 at 11am in the Phil Starr Pavilion.

ALL materials and workshop tools will be provided – all you need is enthusiasm and a desire to help care and preserve this fabulous community record of the HIV crisis that decimated the LGBT+ communities here in Brighton & Hove during the 80s and 90s.

“The Quilt was made by people like us and it’s people like us who will keep it going.”

The workshop will be led by a trained LGBT embroider and everyone, regardless of ability is welcome to join in.

You’ll be helped, guided and shown how to care for the quilt to help restore it to its full glory, so it can continue to be used as a fine community asset for many years to come

No matter your ability – barely able to thread a needle or an accompanied subversive cross stitcher, we need you to come along and do some gentle work on the HIV Hanky Quilt.

Workshop and event is funded by the Rainbow Fund, and hosted by the Brighton & Hove LGBT Community Safety Forum as part of the  B RIGHT ON LGBT+ Community Festival.
