| Stretch October 2021
Welcoming and grounding space for transgender, non-binary, genderfluid, intersex and other gender-non conforming people.
This space has been created at the very start of Stretch to enable trans and non-binary attendees to get to know each other a little, build some supportive networks and talk about how we might navigate and make the most of the festival as marginalized folx.
We will talk about how it feels to be in this 'masculine', cis-male dominated space and explore what support we can offer each other as well as identify what support might be available from the organizers. Starting with some simple grounding/manifesting exercises, we will take time to think about what tools we can use to help us to articulate our boundaries and expectations.
