The Project

Kitchen Feminism Art Society worked with eight women from diverse backgrounds to collaborate on a series of images and short videos to explore the ways in which women’s societal roles have been “rolled back in time” as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic. A series of workshops culminated in two weekends of photoshoots, which were unveiled at an emotional, in-person launch.

The photographs can be seen online here.

The 2021 Community-Run Microgrant

This project was funded as part of the 2021 Community-Run Microgrant. Calgary Arts Development invited proposals for community-initiated public art projects in 2021. Community groups could apply for up to $10,000 from a total funding pool of $100,000, to hire local artists for eligible projects. Funding for this one-time program was provided through the Government of Alberta and The City of Calgary.
