10 women, 10 voices, 100 years
On the 100 year anniversary of International Women’s Day, Maslaha is launching TenSquared. TenSquared is a year-long photography project that captures the spirit of International Women’s Day from the perspective of Muslim women in Britain. TenSquared will share the stories of ten activists, visionaries and pioneers – their passions, their achievements, and the paths which led them to dedicate their lives to these causes. TenSquared will also provide a platform from which to explore the issues these women are passionate about, incorporating a shared dedication to women’s rights, empowerment and equality.
We will be unveiling our first subject series which will showcase:
Photography by Liz Hingley, whose exhibition “’Under Gods”: stories from Soho Road’ at been featured in the Daily Telegraph and BBC 2 Culture Show
Paintings by Emily Kirby, whose paintings have been exhibited in Prague, southern Africa, and across the UK
Soundscapes by Angela Robson, acclaimed BBC radio documentary maker and 2008 winner of the Lorenzo Natali Prize for Journalism
This exhibition forms part of Maslaha’s wider programme of work around Muslim women and women of Islamic heritage. “I Can Be She” is a dynamic project which explores the role Muslim women have played through history in parallel with the powerful achievements of Muslim female role models today. This project is partially funded by the Open Society Institute’s At Home in Europe Project.
