House of HIV asks for input for exhibition

A number of organisations, including IHLIA, are working on plans for an exhibition about the stories behind 40 years of community initiatives around HIV and AIDS in our country. Do you have another story you’d like to share? Maybe you want to think/act? Then fill in a short survey.

Next May it will be 40 years ago that the first person in our country died from the effects of aids.

Since then, there have been many community initiatives that have protected, informed, cared for us and championed the interests of people living with hiv and their loved ones. Many initiatives are a thing of the past; others are still active.


Currently, the participating organisations Prostitution Information Center, Trans United, Black Queer Archives, Mainline, IHLIA, Hiv Vereniging and hello gorgeous are doing archival research, interviews, conversations and fundraising.

The making of this exhibition would not be possible without the input of people who have experienced the hiv epidemic up close and those who are still dealing with him today.

We would like to ask you to complete a short questionnaire. It will take you a few minutes to fill it out. Many thanks!
