LET’S TALK is an inclusive, discursive participatory workshop for Sheffield’s LGBT+ HUB and BELIEF and/or RELIGION HUB members to learn more about one another and talk.
The workshop will be led by RAZIA AZIZ, Co-Founder of The Equality Academy. Razia is a Diversity and Equality trainer, coach and consultant; and an Interfaith Minister offering a service to people of all faiths or none.
The workshop will inform, stimulate, facilitate discussion; and deepen the understanding and confidence of participants of one another and some of the key issues and concerns for communities. Essentially it’s about creating a safe space where we can talk about religion/belief and LGBT matters.
Date: WEDNESDAY 8 FEBRUARY 2017
Time: 1pm – 4.20pm (with 20 min break)
Venue: CRUCIBLE (arrive at main entrance Tudor Square), Sheffield, S1 1DA.
Book your place here.
The event is being organised by TIGER STRUT. Tiger Strut is a new organisation led by BOBBY TIWANA. It is informed by his experience working in live performance/short film. Over the past 4 years his work has focused on increasing visibility of South Asian LGBT people through creation, presentation, workshops/discussions to stimulate/promote understanding. His two film shorts which are about the universality of love depicted through ‘parental love’ and ‘first love’, through the eyes of two gay characters have screened over 80 times in 15 months in the UK and in 15 international cities in Brazil, Europe, India and the USA.
This event is supported by Sheffield City Council.
I’m looking forward to tomorrow afternoon: getting down to Wolverhampton and running a workshop session with Carl Miller. I’m anticipating new people, voices and ideas to discover…
Workshop exploring British Asian lesbian, gay and bisexual lives: Sat 22 June, 2pm, Arena Theatre, Wolverhampton.
I’m thrilled to be running a workshop with Carl Miller as part of the Alchemy festival – a collision of British and South Asian cultures at Southbank Centre (London), now in its third year.
Inspired by the degree of interest and enthusiasm last autumn especially from Londoners, we thought it would be good to run an event in the capital. It’s an opportunity for us to connect with people touched by the subject of Asian homosexuality.
We will facilitate an inclusive space for people and go through series of structured exercises: designed to stimulate recollection, conversation and sharing. Participants will work together in pairs talking and listening and take part in an individual writing exercise. There will be space to share things with the group as people see fit – this is OPTIONAL!
No former experience or specific skills are necessary to attend. A willingness to have a go and contribute within your personal parameters is all that is required.
Participants will also learn more about the current progress and future plans for the Beneath the Surface project.
2 hours. Cost £5. Booking through Southbank Centre
