'Lon-art is a space to reflect on social issues from a feminist view. It brings together an inclusive and supportive team and provides a safe environment to share, act and collaborate.'
Clo MullerOnline Curator
'For me, Lon-art is collective feminist solidarity and understanding. It feels safe and joyful. I feel connected and healed by the work that we do and partnerships we build. It has fostered a space where my creative freedom can flow, and I can not only ask questions but collaborate with my fellow Sheroes to bring interactive, reflective and thoughtful projects to the public'

'Lon-art's Sheroes events always address extremely important subjects too rarely discussed in a creative way. Ugly Duck is proud to partner with Lon-art again for their Revoluciones exhibition in November 2019 tackling violence against women. Our ethos really resonate with each other, indeed their topics and support to emerging artists is something that we extremely value and pursue as well.'

''Sheroes Revoluciones is a movement I hold close to my heart; it’s a safe place for people who identify as women to share their experiences and explore the experiences of others in their own creative way. I myself as a working class black woman of dual heritage based in London, UK have always found it hard to be heard. Being naturally socially awkward and introverted, I tended to shy away from speaking up and would use my art to vocalise my opinion. Not everyone valued my art nor it’s meaning; rejection was a common theme as it wasn’t always tame and aesthetically pleasing. Unfortunately life for me isn’t “tame”, therefore how can I create work that is? Sheroes has allowed me to be heard and my work to be seen. It has elevated my confidence and offered me great opportunities by becoming a Shero. I am a Shero, I hold my head up high.''

“Sheroes-Revoluciones is for me the embodiment of feminist art activism. My work has always been about raising awareness of issues surrounding women from a woman’s perspective, and being involved with this fantastic community has given me the confidence to shout louder. Thank you!”
