TRANS/HEARTS is about transgender bodies creating images and art works that announce their lives. TRANS/HEARTS brings art to the transgender community and encourages them to exercise their creativity in a free and liberal environment.
The project offers opportunities to genderless, non-binary, gender queer, gender non-conforming and transgender people to participate in art and creativity workshops. They’re invited to explore the beautiful process of creating images and stories in a non-judgmental atmosphere. These workshops are offered to the community completely free of cost.
The art works are collected and displayed in traveling exhibitions and proceeds from sales go to the artists.
Identifying the talented artists among the community, encouraging them practice art, investing in their talent, making them as professional artists and changing their lives is one of the objectives of TRANS/HEARTS.
The project is a brainchild of transgender activist, artist and actor Kalki Subramaniam. She aims to reach out to 10,000 transgender people in the next few years and encourage them to make art.
