Workshops

Three options for you to choose from for our 2.30-3.30pm slots!

If you can’t make up your mind – We’ve also got ShayShay’s Pride Quiz happening right here on the live stream so you don’t need to go anywhere this afternoon, we’re bringing you fun and entertainment, plus a mixtape from DJ Xzan from GalPals.

YOU CANNOT CHOOSE THIS OPTION – this is only for our trans youth work users. If you believe you should be in here but haven’t got the details, email youthwork@genderedintelligence.co.uk

We’ve got a cosy and cute trans youth space with our experienced trans youth workers for chilling and having some quiet time.

Workshop 4: Zine-making with Soof (YP only)

Soofiya is a visual artist and design educator. Their work explores ideas around race, gender and bodies through a DIY and therapeutically informed approach. They are a prolific zine maker having made zines about everything from trauma, joy, gender to sandwiches, nail art and ice cream!

All young people are welcome to the zine workshop, please bring a pen, A4 paper and pair of scissors as well as any arts and crafts supplies you may havet. The more the better, so you can make a really jazzy zine. But you can easily take part with just a pen and sheet A4 paper, or you’re welcome to come along to the workshop and to watch and soak up the creative space/atmosphere, whatever feels right for you.
