Stop by our Red Ribbon Workshop and make your very own Victorian red ribbon to wear on World AIDS Day.

You'll also have the chance to hear a little bit about the legacy of our community response to HIV and AIDS. We will have tables and materials set up to make red ribbons to wear.

The Red Ribbon has become the global symbol of HIV/AIDS awareness. First worn in 1991 by the Visual AIDS Group in New York, the following year the uniquely Victorian Red Ribbon was created by Brent Lacey. While it was cheaper to produce, the unique shape offered another more significant point of difference - the inverted 'V' design is to allow the ribbons to be turned upside down a create a 'V' for 'Victory' the day a cure for HIV is discovered.

No need to RSVP, this event is FREE.
