Sheroes is a collaborative project bringing together UK and international artists, feminist organisations, charities and the general public. This is a platform for women* artists, allies and organisations to use their creative expression to give a voice to, and turn our eyes towards, silenced and overlooked heroines – sheroes – throughout herstory and visual art, and offer inspiring female role models for us all.
After having run gender-oriented workshops and visits in museums since 2012, we realised that there still is an important lack of female role models in society. As Jacquelyn Guderley, co-founder of the Stemettes group, said, “You can’t be what you can’t see, which is why including varied female role models across all subjects is of crucial importance.”
As a result, in March 2018 we hosted our first Sheroes installment .
Sheroes now comprises social exhibitions, events, art workshops and museum talks that offer a unique opportunity for interaction and dialogue between the public and artists.
In March 2018 we hosted our first Sheroes installment, a collaborative project bringing together UK and international artists, feminist organisations, charities and the general public. We exhibited 26 artists, run 3 workshops, hosted 5 post-exhibition events and over 800 people benefited from it.
We first conceived this project as a one off exhibition, but then we realised of its big potential and we decided to convert it in a permanent project. See below all our editions and if you would like to find out more, visit #whoisyourshero
