About the project:
Join Cerian, a youth engagement facilitator for Amgueddfa Cymru- National Museum Wales, for a new project called Trawsnewid focusing on LGBTQ+ young people aged 16-25 on the theme of transformations. Throughout this project we will be exploring trans and gender non-conforming figures in Welsh history and lived experiences today. This is an exciting opportunity for young LGBT+ people to socialise, learn about queer Welsh history, and to create work that will be exhibited.
There will be further events in a bi-weekly format of meetings and workshops with young people, and these sessions will be creative workshops exploring the theme of the project. Guest speakers will join sessions alongside the facilitator, and there will be an opportunity for the participants to also run their own sessions.
Throughout the project we will be working towards putting on our own events such as a museum takeover at the Waterfront Museum in Swansea and an exhibition of the work created throughout the project. The project will be tailored to the interests of the group, whether that’s history, art, creative writing, performance, and so on.
The project will begin with an online session on the 24th February at 6pm, where we will be introducing the project, getting to know each other, and designing our own postcard inspired by the museum’s LGBT+ Collection. Visit the Family and Community events section to find out more about the February 24th activity.
If you would like to get involved in the project, find out any more information about the project or know of any young people who would be interested please email Cerian. Please note that anyone is able to join the project, even after the initial workshop on the 24th, simply email Cerian for further information.
