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 LGBTQ+ 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.
This event is fully booked, but more dates are available for February 2024 here.
