About

Do you believe in equal rights? Do you want to make a difference? Whatever your race, faith, gender or sexual identity, if you have an opinion, we want to hear from you! Come join us for a major UK show of pro-female work Stour Space, Hackney Wick in London 22nd-24th Sept in aid of End Violence Against Women.

The programme includes an art exhibition, talks, workshops, Virtual Reality installations, DJ sets and comedy.

All art works will be sold with money raised going to the charity End Violence Against Women, a leading coalition of specialist women’s support services, activists and survivors working to end violence against women in all its forms.

The exhibition will feature a ‘Tilt Brush’ room where the public can view virtual reality art and create their own pieces. There will also be a VR experience in collaboration with Hollaback!, placing the viewer in a series of vignettes as they experience different forms of street harassment such as anti-muslim and misogynistic/unwanted sexual approaches.

Last year, Donald Trump called Hillary Clinton a ‘nasty woman’ in a televised debate, but she stood her ground. In response, a group of American artists were moved to create a Nasty Women art show featuring female work, sparking a global art movement designed to empower women and raise the female voice. In light of the growing misogyny and intolerance in the UK we are standing up in solidarity with our sisters to fight against threats to women’s rights.
