TransAmsterdam Trans Art School

TransAmsterdam, a transgender organization for art, culture, and lifestyle, organizes the Trans Art School. Our Trans Art School consists of creative workshops that are set up for and by the trans community.

 

By organizing art- and culture-related events, TransAmsterdam aims to show that trans people are more than their gender. This way, art and culture form a connecting factor between the trans community and the rest of society. Our workshops help us to create connections within the trans community in a safe, positive, and empowering manner.

Who can participate in the Trans Art School?

Trans and Non-binary persons are welcome to sign up for the Trans Art School. Our workshops will give you the opportunity to develop your talents and to meet a like-minder.

Public activities

 

Have the workshops inspired you to show your art to the public? In 2022/2023 TransAmsterdam will also organize public events at which you’ll be more than welcome to be in the spotlight.

 

We’re looking forward to welcoming you to the Trans Art School in 2022. For any questions, you can contact the coordinators of the Trans Art School at tas@transamsterdam.nl.

 

Safety and anonymity

 

The goal of the Trans Art School is to safely offer a creative stage for our community. That’s why safety and respect for all participants will be emphasized during the workshops.

 

As the workshops take place in the Meevaart, a public building, nobody will know what organization you’re visiting. The workshops take place behind closed doors in spaces that are exclusively reserved for participants of the workshops. By doing so, we create a pleasant, creative atmosphere in which everybody feels at ease.

 

We also highly value your privacy. That’s why you decide during workshops if and how you take the stage. Moreover, we’ll let you know clearly and in advance if there will be cameras present that take pictures and videos of the workshop. Every workshop will also take place without cameras present.
