Section 28 creative workshops

October 2023 onwards

To mark the 20th anniversary of the repeal of Section 28 the ‘Section 28 and its afterlives’ team worked with the brilliant Dr Chloe Asker to organise a series of creative workshops for members of the university’s LGBTQ+ community and allies.

During these workshops we reflected on Section 28 and its legacies, engaging with this challenging period of recent LGBTQ+ history in a hands-on, empowering way, by using collage to create a personal response to a range of historical material. You can see the moving, funny, joyful, subversive and angry artworks produced during these workshops across this website. If you think this looks like fun, please do join us for our next creative workshop from 2.30pm-4.30pm in Exchange Red at the University of Exeter, Penryn. You can sign up here.

These workshops were supported by the AHRC and the University of Exeter’s Alumni Annual Fund.
