Bending Gender Rules
Kaarvan collaborated with Aitchison College in their annual 2017 Art Fest using art as medium for creative expression and social awareness regarding gender responsibility. Through the informal set-up of photo-booth and a giant paper scroll spread across the table – the prompt asked participants:
If you could bend a gender rule…what would you do?
Gender Benders. The definition of gender needs to be reassessed. It is time to step away from binaries of male and female that creates gender roles based on biological differences. To redefine the gender narrative that rejects gender bias and create something new side by side, without one group trying to dominate or control the other. Bend gender rules through honest inquires, open dialogue and thoughtful activities.
