Join us for a creative animation workshop led by Gil Goletski, a multimedia doer from Vancouver Island. They make animation, illustration and music. Their unique experience as an Autistic transgender person informs most of their work; odd impossible proportioned bodies, ugly porous faces and strange wobbly lines. Recently they have been exploring the idea of identity by using proxies and micro-narratives to explore different aspects of flawed personalities.
