Charming for the Revolution:
A Congress for Gender Talents and Wildness
1 - 2 February 2013

Charming for the Revolution is an experimental congress of artists, activists and thinkers, seeking to unpick underpinning, pressing questions of contemporary sexual and gender politics; exploring strategies that divert and destabilise normative gender and its representations.
