"Women @ Work: An Exhibition Challenges Stereotypes of Women"
2005-03-08 until 2005-04-08
Galleries of Justice
Nottingham, , UK United Kingdom

Apna Art in Nottingham presents Women@Work at the Galleries of Justice and the Art Exchange during the month of March. This dual language exhibition, in English and Urdu, portrays Pakistani women in non-traditional areas of work and challenges outdated and stereotyped preconceptions about women’s roles in Pakistani society and the wider Diaspora. The posters focus specifically on women working in less traditionally female professions and demonstrate that women are often in positions of control and authority in their work environments.

Apna Arts believe the exhibition will act as a catalyst to improve educational achievements amongst young people especially those of Pakistani background.

These portrayals of women as positive role models will be used to encourage young children as well as their mothers to view higher goals as achievable, through improved confidence and new insights into possibilities for future progression and employment.

Alongside this exhibition Apna Arts will also showcase the works of local artists and organise related events including; drama, art and design participatory projects with young people.

The first showing in Nottingham will also include a week long festival to include workshop residencies, film showings, theatre workshops and much more.
