Open Call for Gloucestershire-Based Artists
To create a slogan & illustration against gender-based violence. Your design will be used as an option for visitors to create their own t-shirt as part of our campaign to stop gender-based violence.
Hundred Heroines is looking for Gloucestershire based artists to create designs for our programming around ‘MALEVOLENCE’, our new exhibition running between February 15th-18th in Kings Walk, to coincide with the Gloucester leg of the Anti-Violence Bee Monument tour. The exhibition explores different aspects of gender-based violence and continues our advocacy for its elimination. Donna Ferrato has created a campaign sticker and knife sculptures by Renate Bertlmann from the Heroines Collection will be on display alongside works from award-winning photo series from Etinosa Yvonne, Eugenia Maximova, and Kourtney Roy.
We’re looking for illustrated slogans around the topic of gender-based violence to represent the intersectional struggles of all women.
And we’re looking for outside the box thinking, as well as a mixture of illustrative styles- all submissions are welcome! Your design will be used as an option for visitors to create their own t-shirt as part of our campaign to stop gender-based violence.
