Following the exhibition there will be another busking event which will take place on Saturday 06 December, along with a market stall where you can buy raffle tickets, get more info on the Crescent and our services, plus of course be entertained by some really great local acts. This was a very popular event last time, and again this year there will be food and drink kindly donated by the lovely staff at The Boot Inn, who have also provided the marquee too!

We hope to see you at one of the events, or perhaps all !

Thanks for your continued support

Stand Tall Get Snapped – An Opportunity To Meet Those Involved !

The Crescent is proud to be working with the Stand Tall get Snapped project, here is a chance to find out more about that, and also about those living with HIV, directly from the people affected by it.

Stand Tall, Get Snapped 30th June 2012

When you think of HIV, what images come to mind? Blood… Doctors… Maybe that big 80’s tombstone…

Not the people themselves?

Well – here’s your chance to meet them

Speaking at 12 noon, 2pm, 4pm, and 6pm on June 30th at the 56 Dean Street Clinic, Soho

You will have a chance to interact with, and ask questions of, four of the participants involved in the project, with a special contribution from our Master of Ceremonies, Rob Anderson, Chairperson of Body Positive Belfast, http://www.positivelifeni.com

The individuals selected represent an excellent cross-section of the HIV community in terms of age, race, and length of time living with the infection

Situated in the Community Room of the clinic, with free refreshments available, the speakers will discuss their experiences living with HIV, followed by a Question and Answer session with each

This event was initialised by London-based photographer Edo Zollo, http://www.edlondonphotography.co.uk, as part of his photography project, ‘Stand Tall, Get Snapped: 30 HIV+ People’, and is brought to you in collaboration with the 56 Dean Street clinic, http://www.chelwest.nhs.uk/services/hiv-sexual-health/clinics/56-dean-street/56-dean-street, as part of the World Pride Festival, taking place in London this summer, http://www.pridelondon.org/
