Sheroes–Revoluciones was created to continue the fight against Violence against Women* and Girls with an online project created for Women’s Herstory Month and beyond.
The Covid-19 crisis has brought to the fore the plethora of forms of violence that women are still subject to today and thus, Sheroes–Revoluciones was needed more than ever.
This time around, our aim was to continue to feed into this very much needed conversation through more insightful art from sheroic women artists and a series of online events to address social questions around gender-based violence and empower us all through the arts.
The project included:
– an arts exhibition including Sheroes-Revoluciones 2019 artists and some new additions.
– a collage workshop to “change the visual narrative”.
– two panel talks that, through the voices of women in the academia, public figures, artists and activists, providing a space for reflection on the following topics: “Violence Against Women and Girls and the State” and “What is Next for Feminism”.
– an art discussion to rethink the way women have been – and still are – portrayed in our visual history and its violent side effects.

‘As an artist with a specific point of view I have found it very difficult to find the right organizations to work with. The possibilities of my kind of work to fit within a certain area could be very challenging. Lots of galleries and exhibitions avoid types of work with a voice behind it. The Lon-art Creatives has created a platform which not only uses the language of the art to send out a unique message, but also gives the artists the courage and support to share their very own experience of trauma through their work and by talking openly about it. This approach not only brings awareness but also is therapeutic. By sharing your stories verbally and in your artwork you make your voice louder in order for it to be heard. I can not thank them enough for their commitment to deliver what they believe in.’
