‘Waiting for Equality’ is an exhibition that brings together archival and contemporary material to focus on LGBTQI+ history, as it has emerged in the city of Newcastle. Until now, LGBTQI+ history and culture has received very limited attention in the form of public exhibition, particularly outside capital cities. The exhibition is an opportunity to reflect on and celebrate this history and culture, focusing on the development of LGBTQI+ rights and the historically significant moment in December 2017 when same sex marriage was legalised throughout Australia. The passing of the bill has been seen as a watershed moment for equal rights within Australia and was the outcome of decades of campaigning by the LGBTQI+ community.

‘Waiting for Equality’ has developed out of an interdisciplinary research project by Dr James Bennett, Professor Marguerite Johnson, Dr Kcasey McLoughlin and Dr David Betts at the University of Newcastle and in conversation with LGBTQI+ community groups in the region.

The ‘Waiting for Equality Project’ is generously supported by a bequest from the late Mrs Janet Copley.

Join us for the launch of ‘In Place’, an exhibition by UON Master of Architecture Students on Thursday 21 November at 6pm

Architecture students from the University of Newcastle have the opportunity to step out of the studio and into the global classroom. An underlying social agenda joins them as students use their architectural skills to analyse, document, communicate, design and educate.

This exhibition, organised by Master of Architecture students, showcases the work of six global electives located in Alice Springs, Slovenia, Nepal, France, New Zealand and Hill End.
