About the Event

In 2020, SAND was invited by MediaActive and Arts Alive to take part in a project to engage older LGBT+ people in 'Creative Conversations' on the topic of 'a message to my younger self'. The idea being to create an artistic 'something' (!), working with local artist Dea Paradisos and technician Richard Benjamin. The resultant film is fun, interesting and has attracted really positive feedback - you can watch it here: CREATIVE CONVERSATIONS 1.

Spurred on by this, MediaActive invited SAND to work on a second project - this time with an intergenerational LGBT+ group discussing clips of old films portraying LGBT+ people. This new film will premiere at this event.

While we are in film mode - and to accompany tea and cake - you are also invited to sit back and view the new short film from SAND which pulls some highlights from the last 7 years - a bit of a 'History of Shrewsbury LGBT+ History Festival'. This premiered at Launch Night 2022.

Sit back, relax, enjoy.

SAND: Safe Ageing No Discrimination is now the mothership of the Shrewsbury LGBT+ History Festival
