Tuesday 11th August 2015, 12-4pm, Z-arts, Hulme, Manchester
Facilitated by Nicky, an artist from The Bower Wirks, this free workshop will explore toilet politics whilst getting creative with art materials. Participants will make their own props and exhibits to use in toilet activism or to take home and put up on the wall. We will be creating our own toilet seats, cardboard cubicles and lots of props to explore feelings of awkwardness and comfort when accessing and using public loos. This will start us on a journey of re-imagining the toilet and ultimately exploring how toilets can make our lives happier. If you live in or near Manchester, identify as trans*, queer and/or disabled, and you’d like to attend the workshop, please sign-up using our Eventbrite page or get in touch with Lisa Procter (firstname.lastname@example.org). No prior artistic skills needed. Free lunch, tea and coffee will be provided on the day and funds are available to cover local travel costs and childcare. Workshop places are limited.
