Queer Botany: Guided Tour

A grassy hill with a purple backdrop

Join Queer Botany on a guided tour of the outdoor plants growing across the Barbican estate.

Take a walk through the Barbican estate stopping at plants and sharing stories from a queer perspective. Inviting co-creation, and aspiring to demolish hierarchies, we invite you to bring your own stories and experiences of plants to share. We acknowledge there are many ways of understanding, knowing and connecting with plants.

Queer Botany studies, questions, investigates and affirms connections between queerness and plants. The project emerges from the theoretical lens of queer ecology, which brings together queer theory and eco-criticism. It aims to share marginalised perspectives and support more diverse representations in the environmental movement and the outdoors. 

This tour will take place outside. Please be prepared for all weathers and bring suitable clothing.

Please show your e-ticket at the 'Tours Meeting Point' on our Lakeside.
