Advocacy Through Art

Make change through art with transgender artist and advocate, Drew Riley. Learn about Riley’s Gender Portraits project and how she uses visual and written artwork to advocate for transgender, intersex, and gender nonconforming people. Discover how artists and activists have harnessed the power of art in past and present movements. Explore how using artwork for advocacy can benefit the communities and artists that implement it, and how they can begin merging artwork into activism, today.

This one hour presentation includes beautiful visuals, engaging stories from the Gender Portraits project, insightful examples from social and cultural movements, and an opportunity for questions and dialogue with the audience.

Motivational and optimistic…she brings diverse people together for a common goal of making the world a more beautiful place.
