Let's Talk Gender Identity is an exciting training programme which uses creativity and informative workshops for people aged 16-24 explore and understand gender identity and how it relates to themselves and the world around them.

Based in the North West, this programme is facilitated by The Rainbow Project and supported by PEACE IV and includes informative workshops, a free adventure/team building day out, and an opportunity to make a unique, personal, gender based art work which will be on display in an final exhibition.

Participants will have the opportunity to develop good relations, meet new people, make new friends, and enhance their CV with a certificate of participation. 

Workshop schedule:

Gender roles and stereotypes-what are they, where do they come from and how can we break free of them.

Gender equality is for everybody- a look at gender equality locally and globally and thinking about ways you may or may not be effected by issues of inequality related to your gender.

Introduction to Trans/intersex/non-binary people-trans issues are a hot topic in the media at the minute, but news items are often full of misinformation. This session has been created by trans people and will give you a real foundation of knowledge on the reality of trans, intersex and non-binary lives helping you to be a better ally/friend/family member/colleague.

How do our lives and surroundings influence our own gender identity-what is your own gender identity, how do you express it and how is it influenced by the time, place and culture that you live in.

Final creative workshop-take all the gender related thoughts and feelings generated through the course and use them to create a unique piece of art work. This can be an expression of your own gender identity, a piece about gender in/equality locally or globally,  or anything else that come to mind for you related to gender! Participants will have the opportunity to display their finished artwork in an public exhibition at the end of the programme.
