Saturday 13th Nov, 3-5pm
Join folks from the Rebel Dykes project and film for a fun, relaxed dyke gathering and sharing on intergenerational creative archiving!
The Rebel Dykes History Project collects, preserves and explores the history of the Rebel Dykes LGBTQ social justice and liberation movement. We use the Rebel Dykes archive to: stimulate intergenerational debate and community; inspire lesbian and bisexual women (cis/trans/nb); work with academics to ensure the Rebel Dykes are included in history; work with artists, musicians, filmmakers and performers to create artworks; reignite and reinvent Rebel Dykes community in order to fight isolation amongst younger and older dykes and allies.
Outburst is thrilled to work with Siobhan Fahey and others from the Rebel Dykes History Project to bring a selection of creative works from this incredible collection – mostly housed at the Bishopsgate Institute – to Belfast. Featuring photographs, stunning crafts and radical art videos from the 80s and 90s, this show is a punk dyke time machine that confirms how the DIY and collective ideals of radical dyke culture reverberate and are as relevant today.
Free, booking not required. Plan your visit and check out our COVID safety measures here.
