Re-Imagining Pride is a series of six digital commissions from Tyne & Wear based LGBTQIA+ artists which explore the question what does P/pride mean to you?

The COVID-19 pandemic has proved to be a challenging time for the LGBTQIA+ community, with reduced access to support networks, services and isolation in unsupportive homes.

Tyne & Wear Archives & Museums and Curious Arts commissioned Julie Ballands, Richard Bliss, Laura Crow, Dandysocpic (JG Tansley), Bridget Hamilton and Chantal Herbert to respond to these challenges and create digital works that focus on themes of self-expression and identity.

All works reflect the artists’ own views and draw on their personal experiences and the experiences of individuals they have spoken with in the LGBTQIA+ community.

Re-Imagining Pride is presented by Tyne & Wear Archives & Museums and Curious Arts and is supported by The Esmée Fairbairn Collections Fund.
