Event description
Come and join us for a fun and informal life drawing event based on the theme of Modern Queer Heroes

About this event

Join the University of Brighton’s Centre for Transforming Sexuality and Gender (CTSG)  Zoom event . The event is 2 – 4pm 1st July online. Places are limited. Details will be sent after registration.

This is based on the animation Modern Queer Heroes. Each pose will be based on a different hero – can you guess which hero the pose depicts? This will be a combination of short and medium length poses with props, working with professional dancer and artist model Maya Williams and hosted by the University of Brighton. It’s open to all abilities and backgrounds.

The event is free but we would love a donation. This is a ‘pay what you can’ event (donations from £1). All the proceeds go to raising money to pay for a trans studies scholarship within the Centre for transforming Gender and Sexuality. For full details of the scholarship and to donate click here.
