Sheroes in Quarantine is an online exhibition dedicated to highlighting women’s* issues and roles during the Covid-19 crisis.

First launched in May 2020, Sheroes in Quarantine showcases 34 women artists and their respective herstories.

The project uncovers the impact that lockdown and isolation have had on artists’ creativity and practice and the risks that the Covid-19 crisis has posed, and continues to do, on women’s lives and their mental health.

For this edition, we wanted to talk and focus on three specific themes to give visibility to some of the women who have been affected the most by the pandemic:

Women & Mental Health, Women of Colour and Motherhood.

Join us behind closed doors to discover all the herstories by visiting the online exhibition here.

*Sheroes stands for diversity and therefore includes women, trans and gender non-conforming individuals, without them our mission wouldn’t be complete.
Sheroes in Quarantine Part I was self-funded by Lon-art Creative and Sheroes in Quarantine Part II has been organised with Art Fund support. Any donations will go towards running future Sheroes events.


With Art Fund support, Sheroes in Quarantine now also includes virtual talks and workshops to bring women together and further the conversation.
