  • Into the Outside, a major, multi-partner heritage-learning project with local young people, re-examining the city’s rich LGBTQ+ past and creating a new archive of queer youth experiences. The exhibition charts the progress of the project and includes creative writing, photography and archive material – free entry.
  • Reimagine, a Photoworks/FOCUS Festival Mumbai co-commission in partnership with the University of Brighton. Olivia Arthur (U K) and Bharat Sikka ( India) have collaborated for the first time to explore private and public presentation of self-image in relation to the body, gender, sexuality and fantasy. Working with communities in both Mumbai and Brighton, cities with sharply contrasting politics of gender and sexuality, the photographers have collaborated with their participants to produce a new documentary project.
