A Graduate Lecture & Workshop by Nolan Hanson
Trans Boxing is an ongoing art project in the form of a boxing club that centers the participation of trans and gender variant people. Since 2017, Trans Boxing has facilitated weekly donation-based boxing classes for t/gnc people, and have held events in New York City, Chicago, San Francisco, Portland, New Orleans, Seattle, and Cincinnati.
During Assembly this year, join us for Trans Boxing founder Nolan Hanson’s graduate lecture, to learn more about the work they’ve been doing while in the Art and Social Practice program! Afterwards, you’re invited to a Trans Boxing class, which is free and open to the public!
