Arts Projects

Below are our current arts projects. Check out our past projects section for our previous work.

Who Am I?

Who Am I?is a heritage project that considers trans heritage in the world of science. In collaboration with the Science Museum and funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund, this project consists of a display case in the Who Am I? Gallery of the Science Museum, featuring objects and oral histories and asks 'What makes your gender?'

GI's Anatomy

GI's Anatomy is a life drawing project for trans and intersex people. GI's ANATOMY is a life-drawing project by Gendered Intelligence exploring the science of sex and gender through art, in collaboration with London Drawing and funded by the Wellcome Trust

3D Film Project

In Summer 2012 Gendered Intelligence ran a 3D film-making project with Boldface productions. A group of young trans people were given the opportunity to write a script, and then make and produce a film using the latest 3D technology. Participants produced a 'mockumentary', parodying the way the media deals with the stories of young trans people.

i:Trans - Constructing Selves Through Technology

I:Trans was a project in conjunction with the Science Museum and Arts Council England, which began in April 2012. Approximately 20 young trans participants explored the relationship between identity and technology over a number of sessions, resulting in the creation of artwork which was then displayed at a sharing event in June 2012.

For more information about the project, see the i:Trans blog.

Gravity&Gender - Celebrating Gender Diversity in Physics, Science and Engineering

Celebrating Gender Diversity in Physics, Science and Engineering - Our project looking at experiences of people working in the fields of physics, science and engineering and how their trans identity or gender affects them.

Move with GI

Move with GI was a small dance project engaging young LGBTQ people in different styles of dance, funded by Big Dance. The project had two aims - to make a safe and accessible space for young people who identify as LGBTQ to have an experience of dance, and to challenge gender norms.

Interarts - LGBTQ Intergenerational Arts Project

Interartswas carried out in collaboration with Age UK and supported by V-Inspired and Pfizer, Gendered Intelligence held a number of arts sessions with LGBTQ participants, aged over 50 or 16-24. Participants have been exploring how age plays a part in forming one╩╝s gender identity and sexuality, and how different genders and sexualities are expressed across our aged (younger and older) bodies. Participants have been involved in photography, film, drawing, creative writing, spoken voice & performance workshops.

Brief Encounters

Brief Encounters started off as an LGBTQ playwriting project. A group of young people came together and wrote a play which told the story of real-life issues faced by young LGBTQ people. The play was then performed in schools, colleges and youth groups around the UK, used as an educational tool to help students understand LGBT issues.

Sci:dentity

Sci:dentity was a project that we ran in 2006. As a performing and visual arts project we worked with a group of young trans people from across the UK, to explored their understandings of the relationships between sex, gender and science. This culminated in a multi-media exhibition at Central School of Speech and Drama, London in June and a short documentary film of the project was made.

In 2010, as part of the Identity Season at the Wellcome Trust, we were asked to re-edit the documentary footage and disseminate findings from the project further. To request a copy of the DVD or find out more about this project go to the website.
