THE QUEER INFOSHOP
Over the 25th and the 26th of June the Woodend Gallery will transform into the Queer Infoshop, an open-access multi-activity space to make, share ideas, connect and relax...
When: Saturday 25th June – Sunday 26th June 2022, 10.00am-4pm (7pm Saturday)
Where: Woodend Gallery, The Crescent, Scarborough, YO11 2PW
Free Events, All ages are welcome.
The Queer Infoshop is a stand alone, self managed, pop up radical community space, accessible for all ages and all members of the queer community. A space to get involved in a wide range of diverse workshops, or a space for queer individuals to meet, share and exchange ideas, or even just to relax!
We want to begin an open and honest queer dialouge in Scarborough that’s severely lacking in opportunities for LGBTQ+ folk of all ages. To appeal to all ages, we’ve programmed three workshops of a stripped back DIY nature so anyone at any skill level can come along.
So what is an infoshop?
“Infoshops are places in which people can access anarchist or autonomist ideas. They are often stand-alone projects, or can form part of a larger radical bookshop, archive, self-managed social centre or community centre. Typically, infoshops offer flyers, posters, zines, pamphlets and books for sale or donation. Other items such as badges, locally produced artworks and T-shirts are also often available. Infoshops can also provide printing and copying facilities for people to produce their own literature or have a meeting space.”
