Rhode Island Humanities Logo

We have exciting news! 

Wanderground has been awarded an FY 24 Major Project Grant from the Rhode Island Humanities for our project, Exploring the Archives: Sharing Stories/Building Connections. Here’s a link to the official announcement:

Our project “Exploring the Archives: Sharing Stories/Building Connections” provides a series of displays, popup events, recording of oral herstories, workshops, and other activities all aimed at adding depth, breadth, and character to the items in our archive, thus bringing them to life and protecting legacies that might otherwise be forgotten.

Watch for many exciting events in the coming year as we accomplish this work!

Album covers and music resources

WHERE are we?

The Wanderground archives currently reside in a private home. However, we do provide “pop-up” events in the New England region to show samplings from the collection. If you are interested in hosting us in your community, please contact:

YES – we will become a public venue open to individuals who are curious or doing research. The Stewards are working to launch a capital campaign sometime in 2024 so that we can locate and move into a suitable building. If you have experience to support our efforts, we invite you to contact us!

Fun DYKE Facts

Created in 1986, the D.Y.K.E. (Do You Know Enough?) game offers insights into Lesbian living, culture, and community. This fun and informative game features many accomplishments by Lesbians in categories of Arts, Earth Science, Fun & Games, Music & Entertainment, Ourstory, and Potluck. Julia Penelope, Flowing (Margaret Johnson), and Sarah Valentine developed 500 cards each with six questions for a total of 3,000 trivia questions. See the complete game instructions here.

To keep Lesbian Heritages visible, explore our site to see a new question pop-up on a different webpage at different times during a week. We hope this will encourage your curiosity to learn more about past Lesbian life and cultures. Please note: To maintain herstorical accuracy, we present the wordings and spellings exactly as they are on the card.
