Women’s Empowerment – Live the change, change lives! (#WELCCL)
1st Art & Design Awards
This is a call and campaign for the empowerment of women in Iran. We invite artists, designers, illustrators and anyone who will join us on our journey and create a sign to empower women in Iran with their contributions. In particular, we would like to address the current circumstances of women in Iran, young and old, to collaborate with women and create a sign of solidarity. The discrimination against women in Iran has contributed to the current women’s movement. In addition to the economic and social issues that put women in poverty and thus in unequal economic and social conditions, such as limited access to credit, job discrimination, and low wages. They also face legal barriers that limit their rights and freedoms, such as requiring permission from a male guardian to travel or marry. Efforts to promote gender equality are underway, but progress has been slow. More work is needed to ensure equal opportunities for women in Iran.
The Women’s Empowerment – Live the change, change lives! campaign promotes the women’s movement through art and culture professionals from the international community and supports it through public relations in European countries, but also in countries outside Europe. Thus, the serious situation in Iran is presented as a situation confronting the global women’s community and the women’s movement in Iran is supported with the power of art; through art, this untenable situation can be presented critically.
A series of exhibitions in Germany, the Netherlands and other European countries with works of art is being planned. The location and exhibition dates will follow.
The Women’s Empowerment – Live the change, change lives art competition will award a prize to young and established artists in 2023. The competition is open to all artists, designers, illustrators groups from anywhere in the world.
