ARCTIVISM: AN EXHIBITION is now online
Our exhibition featuring works created by international women activists and artists in response to government Covid-19 measures is now viewable online.
The HRD Hub, through a grant from the Open Society Foundations, supports activists and artists across the world responding to the outbreak of Covid-19 and its implications for human rights defenders, activism, and shrinking civic and political space. 26 projects across 21 countries were funded.
In ARCTIVISM: AN EXHIBITION we showcase some of the most powerful artworks from women artist-activists who participated in Arctivism. The exhibition formed part of York International Women's Week 2021. Illustrations, spoken word, theatre, photography and more give us a glimpse of how women from El Salvador to India, Latvia to Mexico, Brazil to South Africa, the USA to Trinidad and Tobago to experienced the pandemic.
