LGBTQ fashion display: join our Young Project Team

Next summer we will be developing a new display of LGBTQ fashion, and we are currently putting together a Young Project Team (aged between 18 and 25) to help us develop content.

In collaboration with the London College of Fashion,Brighton Museum’s Fashion & Style gallery will be transformed by a display of outfits reflecting the last fifty years of LGBTQ history in the city and beyond. 

Over the course of the project you can expect to:

  • Meet and work alongside a variety of young people across the city
  • Learn more about the history of LGBTQ dress through the study of films, fashion and archives
  • Learn more about the processes involved in staging a fashion exhibition, and the variety of jobs available in the arts and heritage sector
  • Meet, interview and photograph a wide range of people within the local LGBTQ community for the exhibition content
  • Contribute to the online and social media marketing of the exhibition
  • Help to shape the content of the event programme running alongside the exhibition
  • Find out out how to put together historically inspired street style looks at a hands on styling workshop


There will also be some opportunity to help shape the project content, and to pursue areas that are of particular interest to you where possible.

This is a voluntary opportunity which will provide a solid grounding in transferable skills such as communication, project management and team work, so will look great on your CV! 

Refreshments, expenses and references will be provided.  Sessions will take place at Brighton Museum & Art Gallery in the centre of Brighton on Thursday evenings or Sunday daytimes, and will start on Thursday 12 October (5.30-7.30pm). There will be around ten sessions in all.

to express an interest or find out more please email the Project Coordinator, Ellie, on with a few lines introducing yourself and explaining what excites you about the opportunity.

Please reply by midday Thursday 28th September
