2017 Art and Change Grant – $2,500

Adonis will produce a multimedia interactive art exhibit focusing on what freedom—freedom of speech, expression, and choice—looks like for trans people in Philadelphia. The exhibit will consist of a movement-based performance piece with audio-visual, photography, sculpture components, and a self-produced educational zine on trans history and the current state of trans rights in Philadelphia. The zine will be released alongside the exhibit opening and donated to an LGBTQI archive.
