A young people led tour of ARTIST ROOMS: Robert Mapplethorpe 

Join young people from the Sefton Youth Voice and New Beginnings group for an alternative tour of the Robert Mapplethorpe exhibition. The group will discuss their first interpretations of the artist’s work and how the topics raised in this work still relate to issues around gender, identity and self-expression today.

Selfhood is a new young people led photography programme delivered by New Beginnings LGBTQ+ Sefton group and Cultural partners Open Eye Gallery & The Atkinson.
