Join Award-Winning theatre artist and facilitator Drew Taylor-Wilson [they/them] and current members of our LGBTQ Art Club “Queering Caithness” for our first Winter Weekender. We’ll be designing and creating zines, exploring a host of creative writing techniques, filming some stop motion animation, making theatre and having a lot of fun as we do it.

Coorie in for a cozy weekend of experimentation in a safe queer-centred* LGBTQ+ environment, suitable for those aged 13-19.

We work 10am until 4pm each day and refreshments will be provided. The weekend is free to attend but booking is required – 1 ticket covers both days.

We can’t wait to meet you!

What is Queer-centered?

Queer-centred means that this not just a safe space for LGBTQ+ people, but one where their needs are priortised, and we feel this is a crucial environment to create at the moment as LGBTQ+ people face a lot of discrimination. We want young LGBTQ+ people to have an environment where they are in the majority; where – if they wish to – their autobiography can be explored in the art they want to make – in a healthy, stimulating space. 

For the Winter Weekender we want hungry inquisitive minds that want to question our norms. Queer in this sense, doesn’t just mean gender or sexuality – it’s everyone who wants to maybe see the world differently and look at what we can all do better.

We are excited to welcome fierce LGBTQ+ allies into our room – discrimination is never part of our agenda… If you think the Winter Weekender is for you – as a fierce ally – please email Helen Moore helen@lytharts.org.uk before booking a ticket.
