Intergenerational Forum: intergenerational practice in Arts & Wellbeing

Join us for a free online gathering, in partnership with LGBT Consortium, the national specialist infrastructure and membership organisation. LGBT Consortium work to build the resource, sustainability and resilience of LGBT+ groups, organisations and projects across the UK, so that they can deliver direct services and campaign for individual rights.

This forum session will be a panel conversation with LGBT Consortium and their member organisations The Open Minds Project and Pride UK Training and Consultancy.

About the Open Minds Project:
The Open Minds Project is named after the Open Minds peer support group which started in London in 2019 as a group for Punjabi LGBTQ+ people. It became The Open Minds Project in 2020 and aims to connect Punjabi LGBTQ+ people across the UK and internationally, and to contribute to co-creating safer spaces for them in Punjabi cultures and communities.

About the Pride UK Training and Consultancy:
Pride UK Training and Consultancy is a not-for-profit Community Interest Company providing free webinars on strengthening ‘LGBTQ+ Inclusion in the Workplace’ for HR professionals, as well as the national LGBTQ+ inclusion quality standard Pride UK.

During the session, we will discuss intergenerational practice among LGBT+ organisations, groups and projects, learning from The Open Minds Project and Pride UK Training and Consultancy’s experiences in a panel conversation. 

The session will provide a platform for sharing ideas, best practice, considering solutions and informing the next steps for LGBT+ intergenerational practice.
