We at Art Saves Lives are so excited about our first “Celebration of Women Month”

This month of March was chosen in honour of International Women’s day on the 8th of March, however we decided a day was not enough!

So we decided to dedicate the entire month to women who use arts to better the world.

We have selected many female creatives, including visual artists, writers, poets, musicians, dancers, crafters and many more…

We SEARCHED AND FOUND artists and creatives who are an inspiration to other women and all. We feel that they use their artistic creativity to engage, educate and express our world and the world around us. We also believe they do this against the odds and WE WANT TO CELEBRATE THEM!

So what to expect this month…

We will be interviewing these amazing women for our first ever ASLI E-magazine which will come out in the last week of March. Which will be filled with beautiful art, articles, stories and more…

We are also running campaigns on our website and social media sites about important concerns which women and girls face on a daily basis all over the world. We have asked artists to contribute art, creative writing, poetry, music, performance pieces, blogs and articles on these 4 topics:

  1. Equal Rights for women

  2. Violence against women

  3. Education for girls and young women

  4. Female Stereotypes

If you are an artist or creative who would like to contribute please contact us at artsaveslivesinternational@gmail.com and submit your piece and your details. The last date we will accept contributions will be on the 23rd of March.  There is also a contact form at the bottom of this article if you have any questions.

You can also tweet us your images to be shared @ASLInonprofit

Or you can instagram your images with the hashtags #artsaveslivesinternational @artsaveslivesint

We have also asked all artists involved one question which we will then share the answers with the world.

“What does Feminism mean to you?”

If you too would like to tell us what your answer would be to this question please email us your answer at artsaveslivesinternational@gmail.com or tweet us @ASLInonprofit
