'Heart On My Sleeve' is a series of online graphic design and printing workshops.

Learn to express your identity, voice and feelings by designing and printing your own personal logo, design or symbol. You will learn to create your design with Adobe Illustrator or with the free program Microsoft Paint and then stencil your design onto a t-shirt or tote bag. Learn how to wear your heart on your sleeve, make your mark and show the world unapologetically who you are through design.

These workshops are open to LGBTQIA+ and allies aged 12–25 years and will be facilitated by Sydney-based artist and designer Kieran Butler.
