Blueprints of Hope: Celebrating LGBTQ+ London

Daily: 9-7pm

London-based collective Gedney Common have curated 'Blueprints of Hope: Celebrating LGBTQ+ London' in response to research by UCL Urban Laboratory (Urban Lab) evidencing a drop of 58% in London's LGBTQ+ venues between 2006 and 2017.

Bringing together the work of libraries, archives, community centres and activist groups, alongside pieces by contemporary artists including Louis Blue Newby, Jakob Rowlinson and Nina Wakeford, Gedney Common present a snapshot of London’s vital queer cityscape, past and present, and illuminate its role in providing a social and cultural lifeline for queer communities.

Gedney Common is a London-based collective devoted to uplifting marginalised voices. It was formed in 2019 by Arthur Carey, Georgia Cherry, Charlotte Flint and Ross Head.
