Toonspeak are proud to announce we are hosting the 2nd Gendersuarus Rex workshop with Eilidh MacAskill

CPD workshop facilitated by Glasgow CAN.

So what’s it all about?

How do we deal with gender, sexuality and queerness in our work for and with children and young people? Is it something we need to think about? Is it our job or our place to deal with this or is that totally inappropriate? What do the activities and performances we create with young people tell those young people about identity?

In this workshop, artists and practitioners working with children and young people have an opportunity to engage with aspects of this wide-ranging theme and apply them directly to their own personal practice. It will be a mixture of discussion and sharing of experiences, along with practical exercises and straight-forward information about current ideas and terminology. It will also be an introduction to Eilidh MacAskill’s Gendersaurus Rex research project in which she has been exploring gender, sexuality, queerness and difference in children’s performance, supported by Imaginate.

Eilidh MacAskill is a Glasgow-based live artist creating solo performances and collaborative projects for both children and adults. Recent projects include The Polar Bears Go Up in co-production with Unicorn Theatre, London; STUD a solo show for adults – Live Collision(IRE); CPT, London(UK); Forest Fringe(UK), and dramaturgy on Rituals For Change by Emma Frankland.
