Exploring Gender Norms through Art

Gender Norms

SUBMISSION DEADLINE HAS BEEN EXTENDED TO JAN 4TH 

Table of contents

Banyule Youth Services are asking for written and visual arts submissions from young people ages 12-25 that explore their experiences of gender norms.

Chosen submissions will be used in a new publication being created, as part of a recommendation made by young people at the 2018 Banyule Youth Summit.

Submissions could be creative fiction and non-fiction writing including letters to self, short stories or abstract stories, poems, visual artwork, drawings, paintings, photography, cartoons & more that explore the person’s experience and understanding of Gender Norms.

We ask those submitting pieces to consider the following questions in their work for inspiration:

  • What are gender norms?
  • How have gender norms affected you in your life?
  • Do gender norms make things harder or easier for people?
  • How can we change gender norms in society positively?
  • How is your generation effected by gender norms?

We suggest thinking about topics such as wellbeing, self-esteem, body image, relationships, friendships & social media for more inspiration.
