What you’ll do
Students will get an engaging and comprehensive overview of HIV/AIDS and its history, looking closely at its impact on the LGBT+ community, Black people and People of Colour, both past and present.
Using our library’s HIV/AIDS poster collection and gallery objects, they will explore public health campaign techniques, HIV/AIDS stigma and marginalisation, and contemporary sexual health issues. After analysing historical campaigns, they’ll be challenged to design their own creative campaign, such as a poster or storyboard for a short film.
The session leader is an experienced sexual health worker, allowing students to explore any questions about STI testing, transmission and treatments they may have in a safe and informed way.
Who can come
We have developed this study session for groups of students aged 14 to 19, studying GCSEs or post-16 qualifications at school or sixth-form college. You can bring up to 30 students, accompanied by staff at a ratio of 1:10.
Due to the small scale of our free programme, schools in the Greater London area have priority.
