Talking GENDERS Youth Project supports young individuals (16-26years) through an artistic development programme around the discourse of gender, sexuality and identity. Recruited young artists take part in an intensive programme consisting of workshops by prominent artists and continuous mentoring. The young artists engage in social reflection, artistic dialogue and new ways of thinking to express and merge their perspectives on gender, sexuality and identity into works of art. These works are then brought together in an exhibition that features the young people's diverse perspectives in the form of video, photography, writing, performance and sound installation.
Talking GENDERS Youth Project is an international community outreach program led by Himherandit Productions with mentoring by Dagmara Bilon and Andreas Constantinou and workshops by invited guest artists.
Talking GENDERS Youth Projects have taken place in Denmark (BORA BORA, Aarhus), France (Le Manifest Festival) and UK (And What? Queer Arts Festival) between 2016-2018 and been kindly supported by Arts Council England and the Arts Council of Denmark.
