Over The Rainbow


This June, to coincide with Pride Month 2022, we are celebrating diversity with a mini-series of filmed art lectures, presented by our Accredited Lecturers, in which we'll delve into each of the colours that make up the iconic rainbow flag.

The Arts Society is an organisation for everyone who appreciates the arts in all their various forms. That mutual interest is what binds us together. We want to create a culture that respects and celebrates our differences, asserts that there is more that unites us than divides us, and recognises the strength that comes from diversity and inclusivity. 

This year marks the 50th anniversary of Pride in London. For more about the history of the Pride flag you might like to read flagmakers.co.uk/blog/history/the-history-of-the-pride-flag and these excerpts from Gilbert Baker's memoir gilbertbaker.com/rainbow-flag-origin-story
