We are delighted to announce that we have been awarded a Wellcome Research Enrichment – Public Engagement grant for a 2-year public engagement and impact project.
We are working with artist Jason Barker, Gendered Intelligence, and Catherine McNamara (University of Portsmouth) to engage young trans and gender diverse people (16-25) with questions around gender identity and medical/scientific authority. The project will result in a new theatre performance and exhibition that will tour across the country in 2020.
As part of the project, we are holding a series of workshops for trans and gender diverse people aged 16-25 in which we will explore the long history of ideas about gender identity and medicine/science, through creativity and fun activities. There are 4 workshops, each on a different theme:
- Saturday 9th March 2019 – Body and Hormones
- Saturday 16th March 2019 – Language, labels and categories
- Saturday 23rd March 2019 – Stories and story telling
- Saturday 30th March 2019 – Spaces
All held in central Bristol.
