Teachers’ Twilight: Talking to Pupils About Gender

Part of Kiss My Genders

Teachers of primary, secondary and higher education are invited to explore ways of talking about gender and identity, using Hayward Gallery’s Kiss My Genders exhibition as a discussion starter.

In a training session, build skills to discuss key topics of trans awareness and gender identity, drawn from the exhibition, in the classroom.

The session is led by Southbank Centre’s Creative Learning team, curators from Kiss My Genders, and representatives from trans support organisation Gendered Intelligence. Entry to the exhibition is included in the evening event.

Kiss My Genders brings together over 100 artworks by artists from around the world who employ a wide range of approaches to articulate and engage with gender fluidity, as well as with non-binary, trans and intersex identities.

The artworks often move beyond a conventional understanding of the body, and in doing so open up new possibilities for gender, beauty and representations of the human form.

Presented in partnership with Gendered Intelligence.
