Curious Arts presents

Words Bare

Part of Curious Festival

“We all have the right to be free from discrimination, and have the right to life, love and peace, safe from harm and challenges.” Amnesty International UK

Words Bare started in 2016, with research from lesbian communities. The exhibition aimed to challenge prejudice lesbians had faced in the modern world, simply for not moulding into a particular social expectation/role.

Two years on, Words Bare has organically grown with research received from the wider LGBTQ+ communities. We are all beautifully unique in gender, sexuality and identity, but we have all been victims of prejudice.

The artwork aims for the viewer to question why these views are still present and vocalised today, and to encourage the movement towards social equality.

The project isn’t about dividing, it’s about creating an outlet for difficult experiences to be seen and heard. It is about solidarity and unity, trying to help those that may feel alone, less isolated.

Groups, individuals and organisations continue to work towards a world of diversity, inclusivity and equality, where people can live happily and peacefully.
