Framed by Gender: disrupting gender stereotypes through art

Funded by Vic Health, coordinated by Knox City Council and in partnership with many community organisations and local groups, “Framed by Gender” includes art installations and a program of innovative workshops that use art as a medium to engage in conversations about gender equality with the Knox community.

Over the month of November 2019, Boronia Mall will be activated by artists Anna Farago and tartist collective, the Hotham Street Ladies. Using topics and approaches guided by local social change agencies, these nationally acclaimed artists will involve participants in deep exploration of gender stereotypes and roles, gendered spaces, and the individuals concepts of respect. The program also includes a variety of targeted workshops with key groups within Knox.

Via an immersive retail installation, The Shop of Opportunity by The Hotham Street Ladies will explore gender roles and gendered spaces, while the Words for Change project by artist Anna Farago and in collaboration with local community groups will focus on gender issues as they relate to violence against women. Together, these projects aim to disrupt, explore and positively reframe notions of equality.
