Queer Voices in Museums Symposium with Hull Museums

I was delighted to take part in the Queer Voices in Museums online symposium on exploring queer history and heritage, in a brilliant Thursday morning session facilitated by Dan Vo alongside Katie Cassels, Family Programmes Producer, National Maritime Museum and Jon Sleigh, Freelance Arts Educator and collaborator with Queer British Art.

This was my intervention in a nutshell:

How can we queer museums and heritage in lockdown, focusing on women’s stories in doing so? From YouTube drag and swordswomen podcasts to Anne Lister tweets, experimentation is key. Freelance educator Claire Mead explores how she adapted her practice to a range of digital formats.
