Sarbat and Taraki workshop – Scoping

Life or work can sometimes fail to provide an open space for those experiencing challenges and difficulties. We would like to help LGBT South Asians discuss some unique challenges they may face within their communities in an informal and relaxed setting. Sarbat Sikh LGBT and Taraki are working in partnership to provide a regular space to talk.

These events will be facilitated by Dr Kuljit Bhogal who will use his personal and professional experience to create a safe and non-judgemental space.

Dr Kuljit Bhogal is leading on this programme of events and being supported by Shuranjeet Takhar but before we organise, we are planning on a scoping event on the 10th of April 2019 in London discussing questions such as

  • Who should the program aim to help?
  • What format should the forums follow?
  • What should the attendees expect from these?
  • What topics should be covered? and
  • Why are we doing this?

Moving forward, we would really appreciate help from organisations based in London in hosting these events. What we are looking for our meeting rooms that can accommodate 15-20 people around a table after work. We will cap the meets to a maximum of 20 RSVPs to make it manageable. We plan on organising these once a month commencing in May 2019. Please join our newsletter and follow us on social media to be informed about these events.

Life can be a lonely place but it needn’t be if we just talk.
