Monday 7th January - Sunday 20th January 2019 Signal Arts is delighted to present a diverse cornucopia of creative pieces by a group of transgender (trans) and non-binary artists. The aim of the exhibition is to showcase to the wider community our shared humanity, that we all have the same hopes, dreams and needs. It is an invitation to join us on a journey of shared discovery so that trans and non-binary people can feel they are equal, valued and included society members.

 

Many trans and non-binary people feel that they must leave their community to find acceptance. We are asking our neighbors to reach out, educate themselves and help us to feel comfortable living here at home. Transgreystones has been running since April 2013 when locals Sam Blanckensee and Sara Phillips both realised that they were aware of a number of other trans or non-binary individuals living in the South Dublin and Wicklow area.

 

The group is now based in Greystones Family Resource Centre and has always been a mixture of support and social interaction. The creative arts project, ‘Evolution Revolution’ was born in 2017. Following workshops and discussions, members worked on their own personal projects, using preferred media and methods. The group and its work is diverse and expressive, including oil and watercolour paintings, drawings, prints, 3Dmixed media ensembles, photography, poetry, films, original songs and music. Many of the pieces reflect the artist’s personal journey and the struggle to adapt to living in a society that can feel toxic and unwelcoming.
