The Trans Post Project is back for 2023! Attenborough Arts Centre invites you to sign up for a free postcard pack and get creative on the theme of Trans Rebels.

You will receive four newly designed art cards by Fox Fisher, Black Lodge Press, BLK Moody Boi and Emma Frankland to send to friends or display in your space. Use the blank postcard and activity sheet included to create your own design and contribute to our online community gallery, revealed on Trans Day of Visibility 2023.

This year’s theme is Trans Rebels.  Transness resists, transness refuses, transness rebels. Transness makes new ways of living and recovers old ones, remembers oppressions and reshapes the present.

Who are your trans rebel heros? What is the best thing trans and gender-non-conforming people have changed about your world? What everyday rebellions give you strength – from rest and joy to working together. What would give you more? In hostile times, we hope this project will be an opportunity to take power from your own creativity and inspiration from those around you, near and far. Rebellion can feel like a constant part of trans life; a power, a burden, or maybe both. Show us what trans rebellion means to you.

What's included?

  • 4 new postcard art prints by Fox Fisher, Black Lodge Press, BLK Moody Boi and Emma Frankland.
  • 1 blank postcard to design yourself!
  • An instruction sheet with creative warm up activities and design inspiration.

Packs will be sent out in plain envelopes. The name you sign up with will appear on the address label.
