Visible Creatives

  • Workshop

This two-day activity workshop will focus on LGBT+ inclusion, awareness and diversity through creativity.

Building on a positive sense of community within the LGBT+ community in Galway for young people, the focus is to design, create and upcycle denim jackets while focusing on the topic of LGBT+ visibility, LGBT+ inclusion, self-expression and body positivity through style.

Day 1 – Focus on LGBT+ visibility through self-expression within the LGBT+ community and the history of this in the Galway community. We hope to do this with a presentation with Galway Pride highlighting the history of Galway Pride and develop a positive sense of community for young LGBT+ people in Galway. This workshop will also discuss self-expression, visibility and awareness through creativity, style and fashion.

Day 2 – Dedicated to designing, creating and upcycling denim jackets using a variety of materials such as creating patches, painting, sewing and badges. This will be a social activity where young people can discuss their identity together and the importance of having a safe and positive space to express yourself.

The workshop will be aimed at 12 young people ages 13–17 who identify as LGBT+, questioning young people or allies. The workshops will be held in the Youth Work Ireland Galway Regional Office and will be coordinated and facilitated by shOUT! Galway LGBT+ Youth project.
