From Frodo to Harry to Jon - literature and mythology have filled our collective consciousness with images of duels with wands, dances with swords, bearded helpers and dark super villains.
But why are these images full of men and masculine principles?
Where is the Heroine?
Trapped in a Tower? Asleep in a Forest? Or weeping by an imaginary line?
If you’ve found the depiction of heroines to be just as problematic as we have, join Gyaan Adab as we paint a new language for The Heroine’s Journey. On the hunt for visual artists, photographers and performing artists to re:FRAME, re:ACT and re:WRITE Heroines for our day and age; Gyaan Adab welcomes all forms of artistic expression.
In December 2019, we launch The Heroine’s Journey - an annual arts festival to build contemporary ways of representing HEROINES in arts, performance and media.
To successfully launch this programme, Gyaan Adab needs your support!
All of the proceeds will go to making the programme the best it can be.
Please donate to help:
- build a vibrant new culture in your neighborhood
- support young artists, musicians and performers
- bring stories of strong heroines to this generation
Recommended donation amount: Rs 5000
But any amount big or small will help us reach our goal!
