Description

FORWARD's Artists Unite to End FGM project presents Hidden Scars, an exhibition exploring harmful practices such as female genital mutilation and other similar issues affecting African girls and women, both in Africa and in the global African diaspora.

This exhibition aims to highlight the physical and mental trauma suffered by many women due to these practices, the art inspires hope, focuses on the strength of survival and also celebrates African girls and women.
