To Celebrate International Women's Day, Stratford Circus commissioned a series of work by young artists
as part of #Fthefairytales with No Ordinary Experience (NOE), to mark International Women's Day on Monday 8 March 2021.
No Ordinary Experience (NOE) have produce an online participation project to protest all those locked up, encouraging people to research and respond to a contemporary individual or group who are imprisoned today. We know fairy tales have not always been kind to women and Hollywood often gets it wrong.
This International women's day we will be asking artists and young creatives to #FtheFairytales by exploring the oppression of women in some of our society's most popular stories.
#Fthefairytales is a national project where groups, individuals and artists will respond to the same creative process, in their own unique ways. The project started with exploring your own stories of oppression and then moves into digital flash-making to connect your story to a fairytale, mythical or popular culture character that you connect with and to make a statement about a cause or campaign you care about and throw the idea of oppressed and oppressors on its head.
Stratford Circus is proud to be taking part in #Fthefairytales, supporting young artists to create. Having these conversations and shining a light on the difficult truths, confront prejudice, embrace new ideas, and share stories through the arts. Together we can be a part of positive social change.
