The Art of Queering

16June2017 13:00 - 18:00


Queering the Collections, a network of people working to promote the collection and exhibition of queer history and heritage in the Netherlands, organizes its first annual symposium, "The Art of Queering".

Archive and museum professionals from the US, UK, and the Netherlands will present their experiences of representing queer lives in public projects. Audience members are invited to respond, in a group discussion and in the networking breaks and drinks, and to join the Queering the Collections network to help shape future activities. Presentations and discussion will be held in English, although audience members are welcome to ask their questions in Dutch.

AHM academic staff member Manon Parry, Assistant Professor of Public History at the University of Amsterdam and chair of the Queering the Collections network, will be one of the moderators of the symposium.

This is a free event.

Location: Reinwardt Academy, Hortusplantsoen 2, Amsterdam.
