“I raise up my voice – not so I can shout but so that those without a voice can be heard… we cannot succeed when half of us are held back.” ― Malala Yousafzai
ANON. Pop Up Art Show is hosting its second pop-up exhibition. Entitled RISE, the show is in support of the movement against femicide and gender-based violence. A curated show of original artwork, protest posters and photography, proceeds on art sales are being donated to Nonceba Family Counselling Centre, a centre in Khayelitsha that supports victims of sexual abuse.
Taking a stand against gender-based violence, the show is an urgent call to RISE together to work towards creating safe communities and a nonviolent future. It is also a tribute to those who have suffered or lost their lives: rest in power, we know who you are and you are remembered for lighting the way, in a dark time, towards a better future. One we would like to raise daughters in.
In a time of pain and heightened emotion for all of us, RISE seeks to focus on the positive outcomes of sharing stories and a culture of support. How do we channel this powerful energy into positive change? How do we rise up stronger than before? How do we contribute beyond hashtag activism? Through the show we would like to share a positive message that is forward-looking and seeks to work towards social transition and healing through open communication and creative expression.
Still I Rise
BY MAYA ANGELOU
You may write me down in history
With your bitter, twisted lies,
You may trod me in the very dirt
But still, like dust, I’ll rise.
Does my sassiness upset you?
Why are you beset with gloom?
’Cause I walk like I’ve got oil wells
Pumping in my living room.
Just like moons and like suns,
With the certainty of tides,
Just like hopes springing high,
Still I’ll rise.
Did you want to see me broken?
Bowed head and lowered eyes?
Shoulders falling down like teardrops,
Weakened by my soulful cries?
Does my haughtiness offend you?
Don’t you take it awful hard
’Cause I laugh like I’ve got gold mines
Diggin’ in my own backyard.
You may shoot me with your words,
You may cut me with your eyes,
You may kill me with your hatefulness,
But still, like air, I’ll rise.
Does my sexiness upset you?
Does it come as a surprise
That I dance like I’ve got diamonds
At the meeting of my thighs?
Out of the huts of history’s shame
Up from a past that’s rooted in pain
I’m a black ocean, leaping and wide,
Welling and swelling I bear in the tide.
Leaving behind nights of terror and fear
Into a daybreak that’s wondrously clear
Bringing the gifts that my ancestors gave,
I am the dream and the hope of the slave.
