Beyond the Binary: Gender and Intersectionality in the Cultural Sector
This is a past event.
Beyond the Binary: Gender and Intersectionality in the Cultural Sector, SAMAG will host a panel of speakers exploring the changing landscape of gender and intersectionality and how this is playing out in our cultural institutions.
Timed to align with the Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras Festival, this event will discuss emerging trends such as use of pronouns, challenges that people with non-binary gender face when navigating our arts sector, and how this intersects with the ongoing conversation about how culture, subculture and identity interrelate and evolve.
Jeff Khan – Moderator Artistic Director Performance Space/Liveworks
Dino Dimitriadis – Director and Creative Producer
Tea Uglow – Creative Director at Google Arts & Culture
Presented by SAMAG in association with Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras 2021
This event is a hybrid event, that will have limited capacity in the venue of 30 people, following COVID safe protocols. This event will also be available in a live webinar format (6pm -7.15pm), to stream with the ability to direct questions to the panel.

This seminar is for everyone – men and women – who want to empower themselves at work.

The arts is a sector that offers great potential for emotional rewards, but is also a sector dominated by precarity, a sector that is resource-scarce, time-poor and often extremely stressful.

How might artists and arts workers…
