The project “Art and Media Against Gender Stereotypes”

This Art Exhibition Catalogue presents the artworks of the nationwide competition within the project “Art and Media Against Gender Stereotypes.” The authors express their vision of gender stereotypes through art and journalism. In late 2019, a professional jury panel, composed of experts in the fields of art, media, and gender equality, selected five competition winners.

 

The project "Art and Media Against Gender Stereotypes" is implemented by the Global Shapers Minsk Hub, part of the Global Shaper Community, an the initiative of the World Economic Forum, and the Youth Public Association “Youth Initiative,” in partnership with the Belarusian State Academy of Arts, Minskkinovideoprokat company, and Minsk-News Information Agency. The project is supported by the World Economic Forum and Procter & Gamble, and registered with the Department for Humanitarian Aid of the Office of the President of the Republic of Belarus.

In 2018 the Global Shapers Minsk Hub and the Youth Initiative were announced one of five winners in the international competition among over 100 applicants, and were awarded a grant by the World Economic Forum and Procter & Gamble for implementing a project aimed at promoting gender equality in Belarus.

Given their wide reach and ability to create and communicate many personal truths, art and media can demonstrate various aspects of gender inequality and serve as powerful tools to combat gender stereotypes.

I sincerely hope that the implementation of this project will contribute to national efforts to achieve the UN Sustainable Development Goals and the National Plan of Action for Gender Equality, and will strengthen the country’s cooperation with the World Economic Forum thus promoting the international image of Belarus.

On behalf of the Youth Initiative and the Global Shapers Minsk Hub, I wish to thank all those who have loaned their artworks and to thank you for your attention.
