Outburst: Eldering – A live Streamed Town Hall & Social.
18 November, 2022Time
Event starts at 8PMCost
in partnership with GCN
For the first time in our communal experiences as LGBTQ+ people we have living “generations”, people decades apart in age who have lived and are living openly queer lives, often in very different circumstances. But there are few LGBTQ+ spaces that support multi-generational connections…sharing, listening, caring, learning from each other and building a liveable future for ourselves that we all want and that we need now in challenging times.
Taking our cue from Elders in Residence, Split Britches, we hand the second Friday night of Outburst over to an exploration and celebration of queer generations and ask what role art and artists can play in imagining a better kind of “queer eldering” and solidarity building across all age groups and identities.
We would love to involve as many queer people and artists as possible – older and younger – in this conversation. A hybrid in-person and online event, it will be live streamed for those who cannot attend in person. The viewing link will be available on our website. We’re delighted to to present Eldering partnership with GCN magazine, Ireland’s longest running LGBTQ+ community publication, who will have a special feature on Older Queer people in their bumper December Issue.
Come join us for chat, ideas and dancing!
