BUILDING SOCIALLY CONSCIOUS EXPERIENCES – RESPONSE & RESILIENCY
In the end of 2018, the Mayor’s Office to End Gender-Based Violence (ENDGBV) and the Commission on Gender Equity (CGE) asked us to host + curate an engaging art exhibit that showcases visual, literary and audio artworks focused on the resiliency against gender-based violence. This exhibit takes place during the city’s annual observance of the global campaign, 16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence.
This groundbreaking campaign seeks to raise awareness and inspire action at the community level to end violence against girls, women, transgender, and gender non-conforming persons.
Our goal is to provide a platform for diverse artists sharing their stories, the stories of others and our communities. The theme of this years exhibit we had the honor of curating was “Response and Resiliency” which explored how we respond to these situations and find our resiliency in situations that seem like there is no hope.
