Trans and gender diverse artist group Myriad Collective brought the “Transpossible” performances and exhibition to Library at The Dock in May.

Artists from transgender and gender diverse backgrounds performed at the library on May 12 and 13 in front of more than 200 people.

The performances explored themes that sought to empower and inspire trans and gender diverse people with music, dance, theatre and poetry.

The art exhibition ran from May 4-30 and featured artists’ vision for the future of community and creativity across a variety of visual mediums.

This year is the first time Library at The Dock held the Transpossible event.

Darcy Gunk, project manager at Myriad Collective, said the performances and exhibition showcased a great diversity of artists and their works.

“We invited artists with a wide range of backgrounds and experiences to tell their stories and showcase who they are,” Darcy said.

“We also wanted to give an incentive to non-gender diverse audiences to seek out more artworks and performances by trans and gender diverse artists.”

The performances and exhibition invited the audience to envision a future for trans and gender diverse people and a place where they could all be supported.

The two performance nights proved to be extremely popular, with tickets been sold out within two hours of release.

Myriad Collective is looking forward to taking on the Docklands stage again next year.

“This year we have really expanded the program to two nights of performances and a month-long exhibition. Library at The Dock is a fantastic space with beautiful facilities. So hopefully we can bring it here and work with the staff again next year,” Darcy said.
