Join lyrical poet Lay the Mystic and cross-disciplinary artist and writer S.J Norman as they discuss their experiences of embodiment and connection with Country as First Nations trans people.

Is it possible to separate body from Country? What does this mean for Indigenous trans and gender diverse people? And how can you negotiate the tensions of culture, racism and identity to live with authenticity?

Lay the Mystic and S.J Norman discuss their experiences navigating these questions in their artistic and personal lives in this free talk

 

This event is part of BODY, a new major project from Arts House in partnership with Midsumma Festival amplifying the voices of trans, gender diverse and intersex peoples.

Supported by – BODY is supported by the Australian Government through the Australia Council, its arts funding and advisory body, and the Besen Family Foundation.
