Gender Bender is an arts festival that showcases diverse kinds of art around gender, sexuality and identity. These range from installations, music, and documentaries to interactive art experiences. Every year, artists all over the world are invited to apply for a trigger grant with new ideas for  projects on gender. 10 applicants to whom the grant is awarded showcase their work, or a segment of it, at the festival.

In addition to showcasing the work of grantees, this year’s festival includes an exciting range of curated displays, performances, and talks. There are photography exhibits, lecture-demonstrations, a stand-up show, Feminist and Queer pop up libraries, a talk on women in comics, a workshop on zine making and much, much more.

Gender Bender 2019 promises to be a colourful, exciting and celebratory exploration of gender and art.
