2017 brings new developments

2017 is going to be an exciting year for The Genderbread Kit.

Team Genderbread Kit is currently talking to multiple partner-organizations to team up and build stronger connections. We have to remain a little secretive for now, but we will keep you up to date on the new developments. 

Samenwerking met Amsterdam Museum

Van 17 oktober 2015 tot 13 maart 2016 biedt het Amsterdam Museum met de tentoonstelling Transmission een podium voor verhalen van en over transgenders. The Genderbread Kit gaat een unieke samenwerking met het Amsterdam Museum aan en zal bij deze tentoonstelling het onderwijsprogramma programma verzorgen. 

Transmission is de eerste in een reeks programma’s waarbij het Amsterdam Museum een platform biedt aan Amsterdammers die de stad maken tot wat zij is, maar die (nog) niet vaak in musea te zien en horen zijn.
Transmission is de door Miep (1949) gekozen titel voor de fototentoonstelling waarvan zij het onderwerp is. De prachtige portretten van Miep, gemaakt door fotografen Koos Breukel en Milette Raats, vormden voor het Amsterdam Museum aanleiding om een podium te bieden aan meer verhalen van en over transgenders. De interactieve tentoonstelling staat dan ook volledig in het teken van gender diversiteit.
Het Amsterdam Museum heeft The Genderbread Kit gevraagd bij deze tentoonstelling het onderwijsprogramma te verzorgen en met bezoekers en klassen die meer willen leren over gender diversiteit aan de slag te gaan. Team Genderbread is erg enthousiast over deze innovatieve tentoonstelling en de samenwerking met het Amsterdam Museum.

Get a Room!

On Tuesday June 3rd 2014, the Genderbread Kit will join the panel of experts during Get a Room's film and discussion event Let's Talk About Sex.



Sexual education is always a topic that gets the emotions heated. What’s the best way to teach kids about sex? Opinions vary widely, from abstinence only regulations in the US to the open views on sexuality in the Netherlands. Are we really so open minded in teaching our kids about sex?

In the documentary ‘Let’s Talk About Sex’ (2009), we will look at differences between the US and the Netherlands. Teenagers, parents and educators share their experiences and we look at different ways of educating around the world, including a view on the abstinence only movement.

Afterwards we’ll talk about our views and experiences on sexual education. It will be an interactive discussion with the audience.
