A Festival to Celebrate Nature, Women and their Empowering Connection
The Art Pavilion - London - 7-17 October 2021
ART from HEART proudly presents the launch of the ECOFeminism Festival addressing the nature-women connection in line with today's concerns about climate change, women empowerment, and gender inequality.
The Festival is inspired by the Ecofeminism movement from the 70s, exploring the relationship between nature and women which has continuing relevance in a time of ecological crisis. Hence the importance for us to raise awareness, stimulate debate, inspire and educate on gender inequalities and climate change issues.
The ECOFeminism Festival Programme features workshops, performances, art, film, and a Conference!
The Exhibition 'Utopia' explores the theme through the work of 61 UK and International exhibiting artists working across multiple disciplines including painting, printmaking, sculpture, photography, embroidery, collage, drawing, installation and digital arts. The exhibition has been curated in four distinctive themes: Icons & Goddesses, ECOFemme, Femme and Ecology.
Icons & Goddesses explore the female-empowering connection with the Goddesses that have inspired female icons throughout history until today. They embody primary ideas of fertility, motherhood, and protection of the Earth's life-giving properties. ECOFemme explores the infinite ways in which women and nature interlink. Femme celebrates the beauty of the female body in all its parts, challenging the belief that the whole is greater than the parts. Ecology is a well-deserved tribute to nature and our environment. As a whole, the exhibition creates a utopian world where women and nature are equally celebrated!
The ECOFeminism Conference discusses the evolution, misconceptions and the intersectionality of ECOFeminism throughout history until today.
The ECOFeminism Short Film Festival explores Ecofeminism through the lens of 15 UK and International Filmmakers in the categories of Experimental, Animation, Fiction and Documentary. Join us for the screening at the famed Genesis Cinema, home to the legendary English comic actor, filmmaker and composer, Charlie Chaplin!
