We Are Failing

September 28, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

“Failing is something queers do and always have done exceptionally well…” Jack Halberstam’s 2011 book The Queer Art of Failure explores how failure can be embraced as a form of resistance to the demands of heterosexual, capitalist society. At this event, we celebrate and assert our right to fail at life as individuals and communities. Featuring DIY, lesbian short film Big Queer Failure with filmmakers Rebecca Tritschler and Ellie Fawcett in attendance, a presentation by artist and DJ Natasha Lall on her novella SQUELCH, a tale of biphobic and racist microagressions on London’s queer scene, plus interactive discussion.

We will be providing snacks and drinks and encourage a relaxed and informal experience where failing in every sense is very welcome. Please feel free to be as socially awkward, depressed, and disillusioned etc. as you like.

ACCESS: Small ramp at entrance of Glasgow Women’s Library with screening space on ground floor. Accessible toilet available. English language with English captions. BSL interpretation for event. Hearing loop.

Ticket prices on a sliding scale according to your circumstances. Choose between FREE, £2, £4, £6, or £8 according to what you can afford. See our ticketing information for more details.
