Green Light – Tate Modern visit – African photography exhibition

August 30, 2023 @ 3:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Our support group for anyone living with HIV who lives, or gets their HIV treatment in, East London.  Offering a safe and supportive environment to help you connect with other people living with HIV, to socialise, have fun and learn and share with each other.

It takes place on the last Wednesday of every other month, alternating with our Women’s Group that is open to any woman (cis or trans) living with HIV who lives in East London, or gets their treatment here.

This month, we’re meeting in the afternoon for a visit to Tate Modern, for a special tour of its current exhibition A World in Common: Contemporary African Photography.

We’ll meet at 3pm at Tate modern for a look around the building and the free exhibitions, before gathering for the special tour of A Common Ground starting at 4.30pm. The tour takes around an hour and a half.

The exhibition follows artists across the many landscapes, borders and time zones of Africa to reveal how photography allows the past and the future to co-exist in powerful and transformative ways.  We’re hoping it will inspire us to take photographs reflecting our own lives, and perhaps create our own exhibition.

Tickets for this are normally £17 pounds but we’ve organised free entry, and a special guided tour. Places are limited and so you must let us know in advance if you intend to come. If travel or care costs are a barrier to taking part, you need to let us know in advance. Support is available to HIV positive people who live in East London (or get their HIV treatment in East London) who have no recourse to public funds, or are experiencing a gap in benefits or income.
