Lon-art present Sheroes–Revoluciones, a social exhibition designed to draw attention to violence against women* that will provide a platform for artists, domestic violence survivors and change-makers.
Sheroes–Revoluciones 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.
It will include 30 female artists who will share their artwork and personal stories about topics including domestic violence, female objectification, motherhood, rape, FGM, sex trafficking, tech violence. Working across performance, crafts and visual arts in a range of media, artists include Maria María Acha-Kutscher, Paola Paredes, Rachelle Romeo, Michaela Haynes, Farnoush Amini and Chicago-based collective Mother Art: Revisited.
All the money raised with the ticket sales will go to run healing workshops for Solace Women’s Aid and London Black Women’s Project and a sex education workshop at a school in partnership with Sexplain.
