Description

The lotus flower as a sign of love

​"Because a picture says more than words".

The objective of our exhibition Lotus is to present an artistic intervention aiming to sensitize the public to women’s rights, gender equality and female genital mutilation and to turn these issues into subjects of discussion. By promoting an intercultural exchange between international as well as national artists, we would like to give an opportunity to express opinions through art and to critically analyze and discuss social dogmas. Therefore, we offer a variety of pieces of applied and contemporary art focusing on and pointing out abuses.

50% of the money earned from the pieces that will be sold is going to be donated to an institution that aims to raise awareness of and prevent female genital mutilation. The institution has been chosen by the artists.

Lotus seeks to raise awareness for Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) and Female Genital Cutting (FGC) by using street art and art in public spaces as media that reaches people worldwide.

It`s an collaborative arts project to raise awareness of diffrent kinds of diseases, with the help of artists. We want to be a Plattform to support charities. We firmly believe that education is the solution for fighting against genital mutilation and this can contribute to a social Change. Our plan is to raise awareness for this issue and fight against FGM with a global street art campaign.
