Event description
Sheroes-Revoluciones keeps drawing attention to violence against women*, now with a Women's Herstory Month Edition event.

About this Event

Lon-art’s fight to draw attention to violence against women and girls is still on and so Sheroes-Revoluciones comes back with another exhibition to commemorate Women's Herstory Month.

Sheroes-Revoluciones WHM Edition will give continuity to Lon-art’s mission to provide a platform for artists, survivors and change-makers. The WHM Edition will showcase the work of 12 women. 9 artists from the Sheroes-Revoluciones exhibition in November that will create brand new artworks for the occasion: Farnoush Amini - Sheroes-Revoluciones Prize winner -, Abigail Hammond, Amy Oliver, Anne Plaisance, Divya Mittal, Felicity Taylor, Lidia Lidia, Michaela Haynes, Rachelle Romeo; and three new Sheroes artists Susana Millán, Silja Manninen and Riitta Hakkarainen.

Sheroes Panel Talks

This time around, Sheroes-Revoluciones will also include a full day of panel talks on Saturday March 21st that through the voices of women in the academia, public figures, artists and activists will provide a space for reflection on the following topics:

PANEL TALK #1

'Women's (Mis)representation: Why celebrating our Sheroes is important'. With history in large told from a male, whitewashed trajectory we want to use this space to discuss why highlighting women's hidden stories is vital not just for a feminist re-telling of history, but to honour those who have been overlooked and overshadowed, in ultimately assessing; has anything really changed?

PANEL TALK #2

'Violence Against Women and Girls and the State.' This topic will endeavour to engage conversations around how society perpetuates VAWG, undergirded by structural violence present within our governance structures.

PANEL TALK #3

'What is next for feminism. Looking forward.' From #MeToo, to #TimesUp, #YoSíTeCreo and Chilean feminist performance; 'Un violador en tu camino' we have seen a surge in global feminist uprising - but what next? Have we gone far enough? This panel talk will address some of these burning questions as we look to the future of feminism.

Sheroes-Revoluciones was launched on 22-24 November 2019 with an exhibition that showcased 30 artists from all over the world and was attended by over 700 people. The project is inspired by the staggering statistics that show how women are potential and real victims of violence in our society (domestic abuse, rape/sexual assault, revenge porn, gender pay gap among others):

-1 in 3 women (worldwide) have experienced physical or sexual violence in their lives.**

-2019 (UK) 1,300,000 women suffered domestic violence***

-2017 (UK) 139 women died as a result of male violence****

Sheroes–Revoluciones aims to visualise this social issue, using the arts to express, reflect, prevent and heal involving different social agents.

** All the money raised with the tickets sales will go to run future Sheroes-Revoluciones activities across London. **
