Call for Artists: Women and Mobility in the City Exhibition

Artists:

How do women experience cities? How does harassment impact their mobility? JAGORI and Women in Cities International want to see your artistic depiction of these questions for their transportraits exhibition.

They’re calling for photographs (even those taken by cell phone), posters, cartoons, paintings, slogans, collages, and illustrations. Full details for the contest are found on the JAGORI website. Entries are due by October 1, 2010.

Their exhibition will be displayed at the Third International Conference on Women’s Safety: Building Inclusive Cities which is taking place in Delhi, India, Nov. 22-24, 2010. (Incidentally, I just bought my plane ticket today so I’m definitely attending!) Following the conference, the exhibition will travel to different schools and cities around India.

    Are you woman attending? It’s just that there is a lot of harassment of us women born and raised in different countries like the U.S when India is attended. I am not trying to scare you, I just wanted to give you a heads up. I think you will be okay.

  2. Thanks, for the heads up. Yes, I am a woman attending. I know I may face harassment when visiting India, just as I might visiting any country, so I’m preparing w/chili powder and safety in #’s by traveling w/a friend. But I won’t not go because of harassment. This conference is too important and I will not let potential harassers deter me from what I want to do.
