A new resource of best practice for the contemporary arts when working with trans, non-binary and gender diverse creatives has been published today, supported by Countess and NAVA.

Co-Authors of the new guidelines, artists Spence Messih and Archie Barry (pictured), said: “Experiencing harm from the bureaucracy of institutional decision-making is a common experience for trans, non-binary and gender diverse people, even in the Australian arts sector. Institutions, galleries and curators often fail to respect and affirm the gender identities of trans, non-binary and gender diverse people — this is particularly alarming as institutions often engage with this community of people to represent their gender identities.”
