Join us for a series of events designed to address gender imbalance in the arts. This is an opportunity to discuss new and existing platforms for female artists, cultural producers and others within the local arts sector. We hope a diverse audience will take part in this discussion on how the arts community can help work towards the creation of a more gender-equal world. This is not just a women's issue, it's about human rights.
Our first gathering, on Thursday, January 26th, will be a step towards building networks with others working in the field and will inform future NK programs. Forwarding our mission to support women is only made possible with your help in creating a strong supportive arts community. All are welcome to contribute, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity. Please register below:
