Artist Shanaz Khanom, exhibits 'Faceless Women', drawing inspiration from memories and emotions rooted in her Bangladeshi and Muslim heritage. Each piece presenting 'faces' amid the challenges of war, climate devastation..the paradox of the removal of facial features aims to establish a connection, urging viewers to transcend cultural identities and see themselves in these women.

When we inspire others to understand and value women's inclusion, we forge a better world. And when women themselves are inspired to be included, there's a sense of belonging, relevance, and empowerment.

Artist and actress Dystin Johnson celebrates the colours of the Suffrage Movement with paintings that are an exploration of opposites and polarity.. Purple for dignity, green for resilience and strength, white for purity.

Veronica Tonge, artist and curator, presents 'Gender Neutral Paradox', a performative experiment in which she explores 'the dungaree' as a supposed gender neutral fashion garment and the mixed messages in the language of clothing.

Artist Louise Stewart plays with the female body and its different facets, 'with what started as a thought, dream or my own mind playing tricks on me, I created the pieces you see on the wall today'.
