Invitation: Re-imagining Toilets: Adventures into the Design of the Public Loo

We are excited to invite you to join us for Re-Imagining Toilets: Adventures into the Design of the Public Loo.

Re-imagining Toilets is a FREE event marking the end of the Around the Toilet project. Over summer we’ve invited queer, trans and disabled people to explore what makes a safe and accessible toilet space. Based on the stories, performances and artefacts created at our workshops, this event launches some of the exciting results of the project:

1. A toilet theme game/installation* which you will all be invited to take part in.
2. A ‘design toolkit’* to be used by architects and city planners when designing toilet spaces.
3. A short report detailing the importance of thinking about safe and accessible toilets, which can be used in toilet activism.

* Designed and made by a team of Masters Architecture Students as part of the Sheffield School of Architecture ‘Live Project’.

The Re-imagining Toilets event will also include talks from the project team and organisations involved, t-shirt making, an evening performance from Queer of the Unknown, and a free light evening meal.

If you’re an architect, city planner or designer, a trans, queer and/or disabled person, have been involved in a toilet campaign, or are just interested in the project, then sign up to come along. Feel free to drop in for some or all of it!
