ALERT THE ARMORY! March 8 is International Women’s Day and it’s time to put our woke-ness into action by doing what we do best: art and the internet.
RCGNTN is the primary media supporter of Rebel Daughters and we are launching an independent campaign this International Women’s Day, March 8 2018 – we want you to be part of it. EVERYONE can participate, so please read through!
Artists and creatives who identify as female, from or based in Asia, especially Southeast Asia. Whether you’re a full-time artist or a hobbyist, you are all welcome.
The goal is to fill up the public sphere, physical AND virtual, with works of art done by female creatives from or based in the region.
Fighting for women’s rights to public space is one thing, but contextualising that to the female, Southeast Asian creative’s experience is another. Let’s disrupt, intervene with, and claim public space and let them know that we don’t only exist, but also, that we are a force to be reckoned with. There is strength in numbers. And this is how we show them – with one united front.
8th of March, International Women’s Day
Wherever on the planet you happen to be. We’re going to claim physical and virtual public space.
1. Leave any work of art, in ANY format, in PHYSICAL public space. Anything at all, from poetry on a post-it to a big ass mural and everything in between. Audiovisual artists and musicians may leave CDs, cassettes, or even thumb drives, as long as it’s installed in a way that it would get attention. Public performances are also encouraged, with or without an audience. Go do YOU.
2. Document via video AND photo
3. Upload your artwork on Instagram, YouTube/Vimeo/Spotify/
4. Upload a video of you leaving your creation/performing in public as well. This will be part of a video montage, post-campaign.
5. Include a short caption about the importance of women’s artistic presence in public space.
6. Hashtag #TheRebelDaughters on all posts. Alternatively, you can also post these on the Rebel Daughters Facebook Page.
7. Let it flow, let it flood.
LAST, BUT NOT LEAST, to our ALLIES – however you may identify, we see you. To take part in the campaign, simply post the artwork of a female creative whom you know, from or based in Asia, preferably Southeast Asia. Make sure to credit them clearly, with a short caption about the artist, and why you support female creatives and their stake in public space. Hashtag #IKnowARebelDaughter.
