The Equality Council UK presents an inspiring and informative exhibition surrounding LGBTQ+ rights and racial equality.
The exhibition features a timeline of LGBTQ+ rights; (homosexuality was illegal in Scotland until as recently as 1980) and celebrates those who have worked, and are still working to ensure full equal rights are achieved.
On racial equality, the massive social changes that occurred in the 60s, 70s and 80s are showcased.
The perceptions and treatment of racial diversity in the media are examined, and although there is still work to be done, it is encouraging to see just how much progress has been made.
Completely free to enter, open 9.30am until 2.30pm Monday to Thursday.
What does the word Equality mean to you?
In conjunction with the Equality Council UK, we bring you an ever-evolving exhibition which aims to challenge your beliefs, understanding and knowledge of equality.
With our new interactive features, you can enjoy tasks designed to highlight barriers that some encounter daily. Can you lip read from a TV with no sound? Or navigate your way around an unfamiliar space with no sight?
A selection of the exhibitions include content by photographer Mala Vadgama and poetry by Alexander Paul. To find out which exhibitions will feature their work, please call the team on 01908 667750.
