Presented by V-Day, VOICES is an audioplay and campaign directed by aja monet grounded in Black women’s stories across the African continent and diaspora. This December, we invite you to celebrate its GLOBAL launch with us in Accra, Ghana for the month of return.

What would a Black feminist homecoming to the continent look like? What is the emotional, spiritual and political meaning of return? Gather with us for this historic moment as we engage the meaning of return and diaspora, and envision a world where African women are collaborating and loving each other across cultures, borders and customs.

Join us for an immersive listening experience of the debut audioplay, and enjoy food and drinks, a curated art exhibition, sounds and vibes by Ghanaian women DJs, and a panel with special guests alongside other Black women and those who love us.

**Tickets are FREE + first come first served, so grab your tickets asap and tell a friend before they run out!**

V-Day

V-Day is a global activist movement to end violence against all women, girls and the planet. For 25 years, V-Day has unleashed vast grassroots, anti-violence work on college campuses and in communities – visionary work that has been survivor-led and focused, all the while revealing the power of art and activism to change culture and systems. Founded by V (formerly Eve Ensler), activist and author of The Vagina Monologues, V-Day has raised collective consciousness about how violence and gender intersect. The Vagina Monologues and other artistic works curated by V-Day have been staged across the world by local activists, survivors and artists, raising over $120 million dollars for grassroots anti-violence groups, rape crisis centers, domestic violence shelters, and safe houses, shattering taboos and changing the way activists make change in their communities. V-Day’s campaigns include the City of Joy, a revolutionary center for women survivors of gender violence in the Democratic Republic of Congo, which has graduated over 1800 women leaders; One Billion Rising, the largest mass action to demand an end to violence against women in history; and now Voices.

This year, its 25th anniversary, V-Day is shifting away from The Vagina Monologues as a center-piece for our movement work to create space for Voices.
