SISTERS - Exhibition 8-17 March 2019
'Sisters' is a project on female empowerment and sisterhood. A contemporary art and design exhibition that showcases and celebrates female perspectives.
The exhibited works, all created exclusively for the show, express concepts of community, women in craft, femininity and social injustice. By inviting female creators from a range of creative disciplines, the show responds to the under-representation of women in creative arts, and the lack of female perspectives throughout society.
'Sisters' are proud to support Dona Kolors, a non-profit fashion clothing initiative that employs women with a background within prostitution and survivors of trafficking, giving them the advantages of legitimate employment and an opportunity to gain financial independence and empowerment. We participate by donating a percentage of each sold work to this project. Donations can also be made directly through our crowdfunding platform, created especially for the collaboration between Sisters and Dona Kolors.
