Dutch Design Week Exhibitions by International Creative Women
This year International Creative Women has two exhibitions: SARASWATI. Celebrating Creativity and HOME. The House of Homeland Simulations.
Saraswati is the Hindu goddess of knowledge, music, art, speech, wisdom, and learning. She is the inspiration behind the design and a reminder to tap into our creative power whenever we feel lost, disconnected, or hopeless.
Creativity is a superpower we all have, but sometimes forget how to access. It can help us process difficult emotions, go through challenging experiences, connect with loved ones, relax, express ourselves, discover our hidden talents, grow, heal, and many more. It can help us turn our pain into power. It can even save our lives.
The installation honors creativity as a tool self-empowerment and celebrates all the ways it can improve our lives.
This exhibition has been co-created by Octophina, International Creative Women, and The Social Hub. You can visit Saraswati at The Social Hub (former Student Hotel) .
