LGBTQ+ history can be a goldmine of inspiration for new creative work - but where do you find it, and how do you tackle the ethical questions that come with making fictional work from real-life events?

Join writer and director Clodagh Chapman for this insight into making new work from queer history, drawing on her latest production Ladyfriends. 

We’ll look at real queer archival source material and begin to find avenues for approaching it as a creative stimulus. 

This workshop will arm you with the tools you need to start creating your own work, and to reckon with the big questions that archive-based work asks of a creative process.
