Where Am I? Talk
The Box, Tavistock Place, Plymouth PL4 8AX
Free. Advance booking is essential

Until 23 June 2022, The Box is hosting an exhibition entitled ‘Where Am I?’ which has been co-curated and designed with Culture Club, in partnership with Pride in Plymouth.

This year’s Culture Club group has been made up of people connected to the LGBTQ+ community who have interrogated The Box’s collections through a queer lens to explore the lived experiences of different communities.

Other communities have lacked representation in local heritage, however, and in this talk Ann Pointon from the Plymouth Area Disability Action Network shares stories from the past that may have previously been overlooked.
