This, Our Hive Of Voices, 2021-22
A new digital artwork exploring untold stories of LGBTQ+ communities in Warwickshire is being unveiled as part of LGBT History Month (01-28 February 2022).
‘This, our hive of voices’ is a participatory arts project led by artist, Lady Kitt, working alongside staff and volunteers at Warwickshire County Record Office and members of the local community.
Part of the Arts&Heritage Meeting Point programme, the new digital installation invites audiences to explore an online cabinet where local people have hidden stories and histories that shine a light on LGBTQ+ themes and
issues, as well as broader topics impacting people’s lives.
Inspired by the content within Warwickshire County Record Office, ‘This, our hive of voices’ aims to rebalance the existing archive collections, and ensure more LGBTQ+ history is included in the archives for future generations to
