Are you a lesbian, a bi woman* or a non-binary person of colour living in Greater Manchester? Then this event is for you!
As promised, the Women’s Programme of LGBT Foundation is launching their first community event for lesbian & bi women & non-binary people of colour in Trafford.
This event has been designed by the inclusion team of the Women's Programme.
An afternoon for you, by you, to talk about you.
Theme:Representation and Advocacy
Are you looking for a space to create, learn about history, and bond with like-minded people? This craftivist workshop will teach you how to screen print your own posters. Our theme will be inspirational LGBT+ women and non-binary people of colour. From Billie Holiday to Travis Alabanza, from Alice Walker to Hayley Kiyoko, this will be a space to explore our history and representation, creating and sharing skills and information.
All materials will be provided, including craft materials and history books. At the end, you’ll be able to take home your poster. Don’t worry if you feel less ambitious, pre-cut stencils will also be provided, so you can still join in the sharing and discussion. The workshop will be a safer space, and aims to be inclusive of people from all backgrounds.
You can already book yourself a seat HERE.
