We were delighted to hear about the founding of Open Plan Scotland, a volunteer led advocacy and support network for all who identify as LGBTQIA+ and study or work across architecture in Scotland! Huge thanks to Mark Cairns at New Practice for sharing the news of this new network with us!
The launch of Open Plan Scotland coincides with Pride Month and they have also organised a series of casual meet ups during Pride celebrations in the following cities:
10th June – Dundee Pride – Blend Coffee, 9-10am
24th June – Edinburgh Pride – OCA Studio’s Office, 11-12pm
15th July – Glasgow Pride – Us Vs Them Coffee, 9-10am
22nd July – Highland Pride – Inverness, Threesixty Architecture’s Office, 12-1pm
No need to book tickets, just pop along to say hello!
To also help Open Plan Scotland properly advocate for the diversity of LGBTQIA+ voices in architecture they would appreciate your assistance in gathering feedback on needs and experiences via their online survey:
