Metal Liverpool: Genderland: Gender Exploration Workshop with Andro and Eve and Talking Circle
Venue: Metal at Edge Hill Station
Times: 17:00 - 21:00
Gender Exploration Workshop by Andro and Eve 18:00 – 20:00
This workshop will provide a space for those questioning or wanting to explore their own gender. Andro and Eve’s Artistic Director Finn Warman will facilitate this creative and playful session.
Using conversations and creative exercises, including creative writing and movement, this workshop will help participants reflect upon and be inspired by different ways to express gender in their own lives, rather than on stage. It is intended as a space for self-reflection and connection for people of marginalised and diverse genders.*
We understand that those wishing to attend may not yet have found a label that helps describe / identify their gender, or that they may not wish to use labels at all. This is a gentle session designed to be accessible for those of all confidence levels and physical abilities.
*We use the term ‘marginalised’ to describe anyone who feels that their gender expression or identity means they may face discrimination in society today.
