'CELEBRATE: LGBT Cumbria'
(Carlisle, Cumbria, England)
CELEBRATE is the first oral history research project to explore and uncover the living history of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender (LGBT) community in Cumbria. The project aims to start a local museum and archive collection of oral histories, objects and imageries on the specific subject.
The project was developed by OutREACH Cumbria and Tullie House Museum & Art Gallery Trust and supported by Heritage Lottery Fund.
We are calling for volunteers across Cumbria to help us build the project. Volunteers can work on various aspects of the project including collecting stories and objects, setting up the exhibition and helping us develop the education pack.
If you would like to be interviewed, we would love to hear about your memories, and to collect photographs and other objects reflecting the lives of LGBT people in Cumbria. A touring exhibition is planned for 2016 to share those stories. The collection will also be housed in Tullie House Museum & Art Gallery and Cumbria County Archive.
Please contact Tonia for details.
