Announcement: 2023 Women's Art Show Theme

-

The King Heritage & Cultural Centre is pleased to announce the theme for the 2023 Women's Art Show in recognition of International Women's Day. 

Stereotype Smash - Some images and societal beliefs (regarding gender roles and equality, ideal bodies, sexuality and aging, for example) have outlasted their usefulness, are dated, inappropriate or are just plain untrue...

Take one and re-create it, re-imagine, re-contextualize…smash it!

Please review the guidelines below - the official call for artwork will open on September 12, 2022. The 2nd annual International Women's Day art show will run from January 14 to March 18, 2023.
