Free By-registration Talk

Transformation through Body Positivity

Has your body image ever been affected negatively by societal beauty standards? Countering narrowly-defined standards of the ‘perfect body’, the concept of body positivity promotes the acceptance and respect of all bodies, regardless of their size, shape, skin colour, gender, and physical abilities.

Taking from Madame Song's life story as someone who defied the norms of her time and who subsequently paved the way for artistic and cultural innovators to follow, Tanja Cunz, Associate Curator, Design and Architecture at M+, will moderate a discussion on body positivity, featuring plus-size fashion designer Gloria Tsui and gender studies researcher Sonia Wong. Drawing on their own experiences with body acceptance, the speakers will discuss what it means to have a positive body image and how respecting all bodies can help build a more inclusive society.

This free talk will be held in English, with simultaneous interpretation available in Cantonese. Click on ‘Register’ to sign up.
