TOY is an interactive installation for families that examines gender expression in children’s toys. TOY will be presented as a gender neutral playground in which children design the toys of their dreams.
Join artists Lenine Bourke, Sam Routledge, M’ck McKeague, Busty Beats and Tristan Meecham as they share some of their findings from the first creative development of TOY.
We welcome members of the trans and gender diverse community, families and children, young people, artists and social services to this informal community discussion.
We will discuss the social mission of the project, showcase some children’s drawings, road test some play elements and enjoy some drinks and refreshments.
When: Friday 26 April, 3.00pm – 4.30pm
Where: Multicultural Hub, 506 Elizabeth Street, Melbourne
Created by Lenine Bourke, Tristan Meecham and Sam Routledge with M’ck McKeague, Busty Beats and Keira Leike.
TOY is supported by the Australian Government through the Australia Council, its arts funding and advisory body, the City of Melbourne Arts Grants Program, and Regional Arts Development Fund – a partnership between the Queensland Government and City of Gold Coast Council to support local arts and culture in regional Queensland.
