Scottish Transgender Alliance
This TDoR event takes the form of a creative workshop which will be a chance for transgender people and their allies to create something in celebration of trans lives, to challenge hatred, and to express what TDoR means to them. The group will be guided through some activities and discussions to create their own pieces: we will be using trans activism resources as well as our own stories and responses to create poems with 'found' elements (words and phrases taken from other writing), which can take the form of performance pieces, collages, or written words.
People of any level of writing ability and knowledge of trans issues are welcome; the workshop will be relaxed, informal and inclusive.
The event will be run as a safe space, so respect is the main criteria for participating. Participants will have the chance (if they would like to) to read their pieces (or to have someone else read them) at the remembrance service at Augustine United Church on Saturday 24th November at 7pm. Booking is preferable so that we can plan for number of workshop participants.
