Support LGBTQ+ History Month with this interactive art exhibition within Colchester Library

What is KALEIDOSCOPE?

KALEIDOSCOPE is an exhibition within Colchester Library to celebrate LGBTQ+ History Month 2023. The event will run for the whole of February and feature LGBTQ+ authors, poets and artisits.

The Library has funding for the literary parts of the event, I am looking for funding for the artistic parts. The amount raised from this fundraiser with pay for the costs of decorating the space, funding a large community art wall and an interactive instalation.

WHO AM I?

My name is Tom Stock and I'm a local creative, MA Film & Lit student and pansexual father of one human and two cats. We all know representation matters and my aim is to platform to work of local LGBTQ+ artists through the exhibition. The library has funding for many amazing free workshops and events but as I am an independant artisit I am a volunteer. This small amount would help cover the costs of art supplies and equipment for the event for myself and other artisits involved.
