We are pleased to launch Queer Rural Connections!

Rural Connections: Mediating Rural Queer Identity through Technology, Theatre and Film is a project spearheaded by Timothy Allsop and Dr Kira Allmann alongside the theatre and education company, Turn of Phrase. Through partnerships with the Museum of English Rural Life, The Museum of East Anglian Life, Pride in Suffolk’s Past, SupportU, and several other arts and heritage organizations, the project creates both a filmed documentary and live theatre piece exploring queer rural lives. One of the key objectives is to decentre urban perspectives and presentations of queer lives and identities.

Queer Rural Connections Part of the Humanities Cultural Programme, one of the founding stones for the future Stephen A. Schwarzman Centre for the Humanities.
