What I Embody Series: Fashion as Expression

In this session of "What I Embody," we will collaborate with the Huskie Closet, an initiative of the Center for Nonprofit and NGO Studies, that provides free gently used clothing for NIU students.

In this event, we will look at clothing as an art medium. The goal is to have participant define, redefine, or solidify their identities and  gender expression by choosing clothing in an affirming space.  This program centers the expression and experience of queer, trans, gender non-conforming and non-binary individuals, and is open to all students who will contribute to the affirming space.

About the "What I Embody" Art Series:

“What I Embody” is a series where participants can reflect on how LGBTQ+ identities interact with life as a whole. This is often something that Queer and Trans People of Color, or QTPOC people, have to navigate because they hold both racial and ethnic identities and Queer identities amongst others. With this in mind, we host this series in cultural centers to allow you to take in and be inspired by the art that brings life to these places. Let this be a space to think, create, and build a community from the intersections.  This is the intersection of art and your life.
