Oxford International Women’s Festival is bringing a powerful line up of events to the city this year, celebrating women’s strengths, successes and solidarity. As always, the message is best delivered through arts and culture, which brings into question the role of women in art, historically and in a contemporary context. For instance, what does a female collective look like? The festival addresses this with ‘MASAYA: The Power of the Female Collective’, a photography exhibition in The Jam Factory’s Boiler Room Gallery.

MASAYA is a community project that works to empower women survivors of sexual violence through creative workshops. The exhibition showcases the work created by women and girls in these workshops across Oxfordshire, in collaboration with organisations such as OSARCC (Oxfordshire Sexual Abuse and Rape Crisis Centre) and YWMP (Young Women’s Music Project). Workshops themes include ‘vocal’, ‘mask’ and ‘body sculpture’, resulting in a dynamic collection of images and live performance art.

Join the artists in celebrating the exhibition with an inaugural event on the 8th of March, 4-6pm, featuring a live performance and Q&A from the contributors. First 20 tickets booked will each receive a free MASAYA t-shirt so book now!
