Self-Aware is a series of digital collaging workshops. Learn how to make digital collages on Photoshop, Canva or IRL! In the workshops you will undertake a process of reflection exploring ways we read, break down and reconstruct images in order to inform our own sense of self. These workshops are open to LGBTQIA+ and allies aged 12 – 25 years and will be facilitated by Sydney based artist and designer Kieran Butler.

These workshops will take place on our hangOUT Discord server – email for more information.

EJ Son is a Sydney based creative born in South Korea, their works are self- referential in dedication to honesty and humour, spanning across ceramics, video, painting and installation. They find the representation of minorities as of utmost importance and aims to amplify their voices and experiences. Their 2018- 2020 New years resolution was inspired by a meme that said ‘have the confidence of a mediocre white man’ which they soon found themselves to have fully adopted, so much so that when asked where they had come by from they were so startled. They rushed to the nearby reflection and gasped as they saw a beautiful Asian woman, their petite breasts, almond eyes and jet black hair. They were possessed by their exotic beauty.

Location: 37 Shepherd St, Chippendale

Prince often manifests in their work the key idea of the artist as a voyager of autobiographical infected forms, contexts, and genres. They are a painter, performance-maker, mover, writer, walker, visual, and (most-recently) film artist — also examining (and tracing) the received wisdom concerning a broad thematic range of subjects including autobiography, history, memory, time, space, the self-portrait, considerations of political systems and trauma subjectivities. They use an inventive witty palate, parodic humour, and inter-textual gifts in questioning stale notions of gender, sexuality, and politics – taking leave from self-reflection, private and public forms of expression and a shared space of embodied subjectivity.
