HyperSext City: Gender-justice workshop

presented by Monash University XYX Lab

MON 17 | 12pm – 2PM

At the HyperSext City: Gender-justice workshop participants will discuss stories and strategies with a diverse group of people to consider how we can use design methods to create inclusive practices. 

With the support of the Monash University XYX Lab, participants will think about spaces, places and experiences from a minoritised perspective, engaging and interacting with the hyper-graphics on the wall through physical making. The workshop is for all genders and persons aged 18+.

The HyperSext City Exhibition is sponsored by ARUP.

Monash University XYX Lab is a team of experienced design researchers exploring gender-sensitive design practices and theory. Our work operates at the intersection of gender, identity, urban space and advocacy. Through our research, we make tangible the experiences of under-represented communities in urban space and planning. XYX Lab is grounded in feminist and queer theory and activated through real-world projects. Equal parts qualitative and quantitative research, we collect and analyse data and experiences to generate deeper understanding and support our design projects.

Our approach is inclusive of all gender and sexual identities. Building equity into urban life requires long-term vision and a strategic – often radical – approach to the design process. Rather than offering quick-fix design solutions, our aim is to offer insights and create moments that contribute toward a larger movement for change.
