Queering Session #1 The Fashion Session

18:30 - 21:00
Thursday Evening Open

In Queering the Collection and the Qwearing tool we take a queer look at the collection, but in 2017 we are taking things a step further. We’re exploring the world outside the museum.

Speakers and performers are (amongst others):
