ruth_portraitBelfast-based Illustrator Jamie Beard, curator of the ongoing LGBTQ+ portrait project Tapestry NI, embarks on a new venture, Drawing Home, in collaboration with Outburst. And we want YOU and your families and friends to take part.

The Tapestry project, which aims to capture a collective portrait of a community through the diverse range of individuals who make it up, remains integral as we explore the theme of ‘Home’ in the context of being LGBTQ+.

What does ‘Home’ mean to you as an LGBTQ+ person in or from Northern Ireland, whether good or bad?
What is your ideal “home”?

We’d particularly love to hear from people who are new to Northern Ireland or who have moved elsewhere in the world.
Get in touch at, and let’s fire up the loom!

Expect live drawing, storytelling and discussion, moving image elements and a growing array of portraits on display throughout the week.
