Saturday 3 June from 1pm to 3:30pm
Celebrate Pride Month with an exciting screen-printing workshop for young people (12-17 years) inspired by Liberate!, a photographic exhibition of Sydney’s LGBTIQA+ history.
If you’re interested in learning about LGBTIQA+ social justice and being creative, this workshop is sure to inspire and empower you.
You’ll create your own positive slogans and banners, then screen-print them onto sustainable tote bags under the guidance of an expert printmaker.
Liberate! shares 45+ years of history making moments in Sydney. From the creation of queer organizations to world-leading HIV education campaigns, and the thirteen-year struggle and monumental win for marriage equality.
The workshop is led by Liberate! creative producer Jacqui North and offers a unique opportunity to learn more about the exhibition and historic events. You’ll learn about the stories, banners and placards featured in the exhibition.
You can catch the Liberate! exhibition at Customs House until 2 July 2023.
The workshop is located at the Makerspace in Darling Square Library (Level 1).
This workshop is for young people aged 12-17 years.
