24 Kitchen Street: AIDS Quilt UK
Venue: 24 Kitchen Street
Dates: 01/12/2021 - 05/12/2021
Times: All Day
From World AIDS Day 1St December – 5th December 2021, 24 Kitchen Street in Liverpool will exhibit handmade panels from the UK AIDS MEMORIAL QUILT.
This is the first time in UK History UK AIDS MEMORIAL QUILT has been exhibited inside a nightclub. The Nobel Peace Prize nominated AIDS QUILT commemorates lives lost to the AIDS pandemic during the 1980s and 90s.
Traditionally nightclubs were, and still are, a space where most Queer people feel safe enough to exist authentically.
This exhibit is part of a wider programme of work to be released mid-September – full information will be released then.
Jonas Roberts, Production & Development Manager at 24 Kitchen Street, said:‘Club culture has become too disjointed from its Queer roots. It’s time for us to acknowledge and pay homage to Queer history.’
