Event description
This original artistic exhibition aims to initiate conversations around gender roles and aspirations in the local community.

About this Event

We'll be inviting people to consider whether fitting ourselves into traditional masculine and feminine ‘boxes’ is always helpful. For example, boys and men are holding back from asking for help if they’re suffering because it’s not seen as masculine to open up, whilst girls aren’t opting for certain career choices as wider social messages depict them as unfeminine.

Ultimately, we want to empower all genders to question destructive cultural pressures and seek healthier alternatives.

Throughout this year we’ve been running creative workshops with young people across South West Durham and their work – as well as artwork created by our resident artists – will be on display in the form of: collage, monoprint, textiles and poetry.

Come along and join the conversation!
