During this intimate workshop, zinester Rae Parnell (aka Raezor Beam) creates an expressive space for trans people to explore conversations around heritage, history, legacy, remembrance, and celebration. Attendees will create a collective zine made of (reproduced) archival sources from the collection of IHLIA LGBTI Heritage.
Participants are asked to bring at least one item/image from their own collection or personal surroundings which could tell a story about their trans heritage. Additionally there will be original historical archival material from the IHLIA collection available to participants to create their zine pages.
Zines, through their DIY roots, have long been – and continue to be – an important medium for marginalized communities to express themselves, communicate with one another, and share community based knowledge.
Since this workshop will centre trans people and their heritage this workshop participation to this workshop is exclusively open to members of the trans community*. Capacity is very limited, attendance is free but registration is needed.
To attend please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
This workshop is organized within the framework of the TRANS HERITAGE NL project. Parts of this are the exhibition ‘Extraordinary history. Transgender in the Netherlands’; and a broad public program with workshops, guided tours and a lecture. The exhibition, which can be visited free of charge at IHLIA LGBTI Heritage until October 10, is curated by Alex Bakker. This program was made possible with the support of the Municipality of Amsterdam.
*this includes transgender and non-binary folks, gender non-confirming people and those questioning. Anyone who feels part of the community is welcome to register for this workshop.
There is no need to disclose your gender identity in the registration email!
