The RISE exhibition is travelling! With new work by ten artists added to the roster of some 40+ featured artists, photographers and poets, the show is moving to a new, larger venue: 44 on Long for 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence.

16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence is an international campaign to challenge violence against women and girls. The campaign runs every year from 25 November, the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, to 10 December, International Human Rights Day.

The show runs daily from 25 November to 10 December, with an open night on Thursday 5 December.

Proceeds of art sales are being donated to Nonceba.org, an organisation in Khayelitsha doing important work rehabilitating women and children survivors of sexual abuse. You can support this important cause by ordering artworks and prints online or donating directly to the organisation.
