Non-binary drawing dreams

Do you dream of drawing non-binary characters? Wondering where to start? Do you think we need a wider representation of people that do not fit in the gender binary?
Join us in our play area where we will paint supersize non-binary figures together. This workshop is open to all LGBTQ+ people aged 15-120. Although no previous experience is necessary, it is a plus to have previous knowledge of drawing and visual storytelling.
✨Everything you need to know✨
We want to create a space where LGBTQ+ people feel free to express themselves and their non-binary dreams and visions. During the workshop we will discuss how to approach character building with a focus on non-binary figures. How do you draw someone outside the gender binary? What are the things to consider? How can we empower each other through drawing?
The focus of the workshop is non-binary character building. That being said, both Warda and Jasmina work with an intersectional perspective in mind. That means that we will spotlight the interconnectedness of social categorisations like race, class and gender, to name a few.
The workshop will begin with a short theoretical introduction. Then we’re gunna get going, working with our hands to try out drawing some supersize non-binary characters ourselves.
During the workshop we’re going to be working life-size to draw different body parts. We’ll then bring all the pieces together to make a sculpture we’re calling the character shape-shifter. This is going to be a sculpture with moving parts to muddle up all of our different character pieces, giving us the possibility to build new combinations of collectively made characters. There will be one cube for the head, one for the upper part of the body and one for legs.
The workshop hosts Warda and Jasmina will assist you with drawing techniques and the painting material to form our supersize nonbinary sculpture.
The sculpture will then be displayed in the space for the rest of the week.
The DRIN (INSIDE) project focuses on representation regarding children of colour – always with an intersectional approach. Children’s books shape the worldview we grow up with. It is important for children to be able to recognize themselves in stories, illustrations, and narratives. The DRIN project addresses the need to empower and enable everyone to participate in our societies.
