Come and visit us at Greenbelt 2018. If you would like to volunteer to help manage the stand we share please email us at  sibylslink@gmail.com

 

 

Engaged with culture, inspired by the arts, sustained by faith, Grenbelt aspires to be an open generous community re-imagining the Christian narrative for the present moment. Its mission is to create spaces, like festivals, where art, faith and justice collide. Where artistry and activism, spirituality and politics, faith and justice are held together.

 

 Greenbelt saw its first edition way back in 1974 and has hosted its annual festival every single year since. But thinking of Greenbelt as just another ‘festival’ doesn’t do it justice. It is also an idea, a way of seeing, a gathering of the clans – part movement, part moment. Its genius is that it defies easy description.

   GIRES is a volunteer operated membership charity that, in collaboration with the other groups in its field, hears, helps, empowers and gives a voice to trans and gender non-conforming individuals, including those who are non-binary and non-gender, as well as their families. 

 

 GIRES uses evidence from these individuals' lived experiences, combined with scientific research into gender identity development, to educate all those who are able to improve their wellbeing. We contribute to policy development regarding equality and human rights for these individuals, especially in healthcare.

   

GIRES also delivers training, e-learning and information to public and private sector organisations, many of which are Corporate Members of the charity, for instance when a trans or gender non-conforming employee or student needs support.
