Gender Access Training for Venues and Organisations

Lead by Lucy J Skilbeck and another leading arts practitioner in this field, this workshop is an introduction to positive gender inclusivity within arts organisations. We will discuss best practice, and provide a space for relaxed and open discussion. The outcome of this workshop will be to build a tangible toolkit for venues and organisations to use when actioning gender inclusivity.

Topics covered:

General awareness around Transgender, non-binary and queer identities
New approaches to gender equality
Working with artists
Mental Health support for artists exploring gender identity
Making your venue welcoming to all – staff and audiences

We will make this workshop bespoke to your organisation, your aims and needs.

The workshop was originally commissioned by Camden People’s Theatre, and created in collaboration with Emma Frankland and Griffyn Gilligan.

“The gender positivity training we received from Milk Presents was an interactive, inclusive and comprehensive training session tailored to our organisation that gave us the space to consider and improve both our individual and organisational approaches to gender positivity and inclusion. We would highly recommend this training!”

Chrissy Angus, Head of Administration Lyric Hammersmith

“Milk Presents’ workshop on gender positivity and inclusion really helps to open a conversation about these topics, within the work environment. The leaders’ teaching style is creative, open and informal and the course content covers lots of topics relevant to artistic workplaces. Participants leave feeling energised, informed and more confident. Having taken a few different courses on gender positivity, I find Milk Presents’ style the most welcoming and engaging and would highly recommend them to others. 5/5”
