This International Women’s Day, in collaboration with our partners, the Aspire Artemis Foundation will provide a platform for all people, especially those marginalized and underrepresented, to tell their authentic stories of their true and lived experience; stories of triumph and struggle; stories that prove that in the end, we are all human beings connected by a thin line of shared and lived experiences.
With the current push for intersectionality, inclusion, and racial equity globally, this event seeks to allow underrepresented groups to claim the power of shaping their own narratives through inclusive and innovative technology platforms. The power of stories to humanize and bridge cultures as well as connect people from diverse backgrounds cannot be denied. Technology allows us the unique privilege of traveling to diverse lands from the comfort of our own homes. In the same vein, stories transport us into other worlds we may have not imagined entering. This event endeavours to ensure the celebration of multiculturalism as a means towards bridging as opposed to creating divides.
It merges the act of creation and play with the drive towards increasing digital literacy, connection, and a greater diversity in STEM fields.
In this two session training, advocacy, and capacity development workshop series, you will not only share in the policies and lessons learnt from organizations across the globe in session one, but in session two, you will take part in interactive sessions which provide actionable methods for how we can use the arts, storytelling, and technology to unlock the potential of underrepresented and disadvantaged groups.
