LGBT+ History Month


To celebrate LGBT+ History Month, we have been working closley with the LGBT+ association on some exciting projects. From 15th -28th February, an exhibition of photographs taken of our Loughborough LGBT+ community by Ming de Nasty will be open to view in Martin Hall Exhibition Space. The exhibition includes descriptions written by those photographed about how they identify and fit within the community. In addition to this, Rachel Aggs will be running a guitar workshop open to beginners where she will look at music by LGBTQ women and teach you how to stike some cords and make cool sounds using different techniques.

Music Workshops


Wednesday 27th February

We’re really delighted to have guitar hero Rachel Aggs running a workshop which will is open to all, regardless of ability/style. Rachel will offer examples of her favourite self-taught guitarists and some inspiring LGBTQ, women and POC guitar heroes!! The workshop will focus on having great ideas and making cool sounds, not on technique or right/wrong ways of playing, because there is no wrong way!

Wednesday 6th March

To mark the release of the score for Nottingham-based artist Rebecca Lee's recent work with Loughborough University's contemporary art programme, Rebecca will be returning to run a workshop on musical imporvisation and listening. The workshop will be of interest to anyone interested in experimental methods for making music on any instrument (including singers), and regardless of formal musical ability. 

This is open to the public, students and staff

Radar: 'In conversation' events


Across February and March, artists Phoebe Collings-James, Rachel Pimm and Richard Paul will be starting their research residencies in the Department of Materials at Loughborough University. During their time here they will work in collaboration with academic researchers on a research project which fits with their artistic practices. They will each present the results of their project in a small exhibition on campus and during their residency they will each host a free 'in conversation' event with an invited speaker related to their frame of work. You can find out more about the indivdual talks on the Radar events page.
