British artist Phoebe Davies in collaboration with The Sibikwa Arts Centre presents Influences Nail Salon as part of the 16 Days of Activism for No Violence Against Women and Children.
Phoebe has collaborated with young women from Sibikwa Arts to research the social, political and personal issues and experiences specific to them. This group has developed a new series of nail designs depicting Southern African women of influence, these will then be applied for free in exchange for conversation and dialogue from the visiting public. This nail salon acts as a site for dialogue and exchange of ideas, questioning what feminism and gender equality means today.
On Saturday 28 November between 13-14.30 the nail salon is offering Treatments, a public programme of activities and events curated by Ashley Whitfield with the aim to further unpack the notion of feminism.
