CONSTRUCTING IDENTITY: An Exploration of Self Through Wearable Sculpture

This project sets out to offer GLBTQ youth the ability to gain confidence through the creation of characters and costumes that are based in their own expression of identity. It is a collaborative effort between artist Scott Andrew and the GLCC's existing Friday night youth Drop-In and PERSAD sponsored After-School programs. These programs currently support a range of 20 to 40 youth each week who are assisted through an entirely volunteer staff. The proposed Constructing Identity project will involve the creation of costumes and wearable sculptures that will be created by GLBTQ teenagers ranging from 13 to 17 years old, who currently attend programs at the GLCC.
