‘To Whom It May Concern’ by Jordan Roberts

 

Manchester artist Jordan Roberts is looking for participants to take part in an exciting new art project focusing on the lives of people in Greater Manchester who are living with HIV.

 

The project involves having a portrait taken and a letter writing exercise.

 

The work will be exhibited publicly but both portraits and letters can be anonymised as much as the participant likes with the full support of the artist.

 

A workshop for participants to have portraits taken and to work on writing letters will take place on Sunday 17th November from 1pm at Partisan, 19 Cheetham Hill Road, M4 4FY (near Victoria Train Station).

 

The letter writing portion of the workshop will be facilitated by award-winning playwright Nathaniel Hall.

 

Nathaniel’s critically acclaimed play ‘First Time’ has been helping to change the public conversation around life with HIV.

 

Participants should be:

 

• Living with HIV.

• Based in Greater Manchester.

• Happy to share their story on their terms.

• Free on 17th November.

• The project is actively seeking women, trans and non-binary people, and people of colour to take part in this project to show the diversity of people living with HIV in our city.

 

There is also an option to read your letter at a launch event on 30 November. Everyone is welcome to attend this event whether they would like to read their letter or not.

 

Please contact Jordan Roberts by email.

 

This project is supported by Superbia at Manchester Pride.

 

PLEASE NOTE: This project is external and is not organised by George House Trust
