Let Her Be, Art in Movement
As we approach International Women's Day, a group of 40 women from 16 countries has come together to create a project embodying this important celebration's true spirit.
In a world where women's rights are still not fully realised, this diverse group of women has co-created a powerful artistic statement. They have woven their voices, ideas, cultures, and stories into 14 stunning tunics that represent fundamental human rights.
Sally Ocana, co-founder of International Creative Women is the woman behind this project and the original design of the tunics is from Sameen Ansari, founder of Kaftaan Queens.
These dresses are more than just fabric and thread, they are symbols of hope, courage, and resilience. Each dress has been meticulously crafted to tell a unique story. From the right to equality and movement, to freedom from slavery and discrimination, these women have poured their hearts and souls into every stitch, bead and embellishment.
The tunics are not only beautiful but a poignant reminder of the struggles that women continue to face every day. This project is a testament to the power of diversity and unity, a call to action for a world where all women are free to live their lives with dignity and respect.
We invite you to join us on this journey that will evoke a range of emotions - from anger and frustration, to joy and hope.
Next March 11, during the celebration of International Women's day at the Park Theater, you will be inspired by the beauty and strength of these tunics.
