A Mile of Black Paper Workshop

A Mile of Black Paper Workshop


When the New York Times bought its very first fax machine, ACT UP New York faxed them a mile of black paper to shut down the machine in protest of the newspaper’s silence on the AIDS epidemic.

‘A mile of black paper’ is a collaborative art project inspired by this action, which explores HIV/AIDS history and activism.This workshop will focus on HIV, AIDS and film; a 'teach-in' session will be followed by an invitation for participants to produce their own pieces of art in response.

Workshop facilitator is Greg Thorpe (he/him) is an artist, writer, curator and arts freelancer in Manchester. He is the Project Manager for Superbia, the year-round programme of culture from Manchester Pride, and works at Islington Mill, an independent artist community in Salford.

Part of Leeds Queer Film Festival 2019

We are committed to making the event affordable for everyone. We use a sliding scale which allows everyone to afford a ticket that is within their financial reach whilst also ensuring the event can continue each year. We ask that you be honest with yourself and your financial situation. If you purchase a ticket at the lowest end of the scale when you could afford the higher ticket prices, it makes it harder for us to provide financial flexibility to those who most need it. Tickets are PAY WHAT YOU CAN between £0 - £6 and are available on the door. This is for a full day’s pass.
