Fox Fisher Workshop: Dogs Don’t Care About Pronouns. But Many People Really Do.

What are pronouns? Why are they important?

Join artist, author, filmmaker and educator Fox Fisher for a trans and non-binary inclusive workshop for families, in whatever form they take.

Explore pronouns and why they are important to humans (but not so much dogs) by drawing, printing and creating a collaborative banner.

This workshop hopes to bring people of all ages together to spend time in fun, solidarity and Empowerment.

The activities in this workshop are suitable people aged 8+ (but younger siblings are also welcome). Children must be accompanied by an adult.
