rukus logoFederation is known for its long-standing and successful programme of community-based work with Black Lesbian, Gay, and Bisexual, Trans artists, activists and cultural producers nationally and internationally. Our work has a reputation for being dynamic and participative, and includes one off events, screenings, workshops, theatre performances, club based events, debates and exhibitions.

The rukus! Archive, launched in 2005, generates, collects, preserves and makes available to the public historical, cultural and artistic materials relating to our lived experience in the UK. The archive is currently deposited at London Metropolitan Archives.

  • Conference Procedings Organisational Records (agendas, minutes, reports, etc.)
