Upcoming Dates and themes

February

Saturday 25 February 2017

For February's Saturday session, we are running a trip for young people to the Museum of Transology. The Museum of Transology is an exhibition at the Fashion Space Gallery made up of objects and artefacts that hold importance of trans individuals, as well as portraits and short films about trans life.

Our trip to the exhibition will include a tour of the gallery with the assistant curator and a workshop about what curating is all about.

Time: 12pm-4.15pm

Meeting point: 12 noon - 12.15pm outside Voluntary Action Islington (200a Pentonville Road, N1 9JP)

Young people can be collected by their parents from outside the Fashion Space Gallery.

We will need your parent’s consent and also a completed and signed membership form. Without the consent of parents/ carers or membership form you will not be allowed to come on the trip.

More about the Museum of Transology from Fashion Space Gallery's website:

The Museum of Transology is the largest and boldest display of trans artefacts and photographic portraiture ever displayed in the UK. This highly intimate exhibition will challenge the idea that gender is fixed, binary and biologically determined by exploring how the artefacts helped fashion self-shaped gender identities.
