Due to Covid-19 ticket sales are currently frozen. The health and safety of the attendees and speakers are of the highest importance and we will be monitoring the situation carefully to create the best outcome for all.

We hope that the event will still go ahead so the tickets are now scheduled to go on sale early June 2020. but Updates for this event can be found at: @jasskthethi.

Galleries, Libraries and Archives and Museums (GLAM) are not neutral. People from BAME, LGBTQIA, Neuro-divergent, disabled and Working Class backgrounds are often overlooked, misrepresented or erased from the sector.

Well not anymore!

#IGLAM2020 is a grassroots conference organised to empower everyone within the sector by centering stories and opinions of overlooked and erased peoples. While prioritising accessibility in a LGBTQIA, Transgender, BAME and disability friendly building

Speakers from the most impacted groups of misrepresentation and erasure will be running the show.

This includes people of BAME, LGBTQIA, Neuro-divergent, disabled and Working Class backgrounds. Their professional and personal experience give you the tools to empower yourselves to create space for overlooked groups.

Come along and help me create a ruckus which leads to a real, dependable, and intersectional GLAM. With lunch included!
