Once upon a time...

We were told stories that shaped who we are...

A Damsel in Distress

A Wicked Witch

A Heroic Prince...

It's Time to Change the Narrative

What is Arts Week?

The global festival for gender equality.

Starting on International Women’s Day, 8th March, HeForShe Arts Week is celebrated annually and globally for one week from the 8th- 15th March.

HeForShe Arts Week is a unique opportunity for art and cultural institutions worldwide to support the goal of gender equality.

Because it is time to change our stories
to change our cultures and our behaviour
