For LGBTQ History Month 2023, Curious Arts and Discovery Museum present an event focussing on how we can preserve LGBTQIA+ history, including items like newsletters, leaflets and posters, as well as badges, t-shirts and the other objects that form a part of all our personal and wider social history. It will also be an opportunity to discuss the creation of an LGBTQIA+ archive for the North East. There will be ideas and help on how to preserve your own items, how to create digital records to add to a local collection, as well as tours of the Stores of the Discovery Museum. Richard Bliss, Arts and Heritage Associate artist for Curious Arts said:

“We need to have a record of what we did and who we are. This day will be a chance for people to come together and tell us what they have at home, and how we might begin to build an archive, both digitally and by collecting notes, newsletters, leaflets and objects, all of which tell the history of LGBTQIA+ life in the North East.”
