Fully Automated Luxury Gender Oasis @ Block Party

A Host Of Events Showcasing Trans Artists Are Happening In Ireland This Week

Do you sometimes find festivals overwhelming? Do you ever yearn to draw or crochet, even though you’ve always been convinced you couldn’t? Want to read books and play games or chat about gender?.

Join us for CHILL TIME at our pop-up Oasis during Quarter Block Party, by gender.RIP in association with Kate Kiernan (Small Trans Library), with special guest Morgan M. Page (One From The Vaults, Odofemi). The space will be open and free for you to kick back, relax, and replenish your energy reserves. Activities available will include drawing, playing video games by trans game creators, crochet, knitting, browsing the collection of trans publications available for reading, and viewing the artworks on display. (Or you can come and do nothing at all, whatever you need from the Oasis!) This space is for you – consider it your festival home.

It is vital to organisers that this continues to be a platform for local trans art to be elevated. Presenting at Quarter Block Party, we want to bring Munster trans artists together and provide a context for those in the province who have never shown work before. We want to engage with communities that already exist, and help them to grow, develop, and multiply.

Whatever has left you parched, the Fully Automated Luxury Gender Oasis is here to replenish you!
