Flexed: Creative programme for young LGBTQ+ people
Flexed is a new youth arts programme based in St Leonards providing space for LGBTQ+ young people to come together, socialise and connect through a variety of events and activities.
Flexed will be programming unique events for young LGBTQ+ folk and their friends which bring together creativity, music, performance, film and much more.
From drag performances to immersive film nights these events will not only be enjoyable social gatherings but will also provide a queer community for young people in which difference is celebrated and embraced.
A series of creative activities and collaborative workshops are also being developed to encourage young LGBTQ+ people to connect with each other and learn new skills.
These activities will be led by industry professionals and will range from film-making to music creation.
Flexed is a community project led by local LGBTQ+ residents who have formed a voluntary run Working Group to help shape the vision of the project.
It is part of Good Stuff in St Leonards, a community-led programme of creative activities and events. More information on Flexed including how to be involved can be found on the dedicated Good Stuff website.
Good Stuff in St Leonards is coordinated by Home Live Art and funded by Creative Civic Change – a partnership between Local Trust, the National Lottery Community Fund, the Calouste Gulbekian Foundation, and the Esmée Fairbairn Foundation.
