The Woman Project is a not-for-profit artistic activism group that uses creative messaging and installations to invite inclusiveness on difficult topics that effect every Rhode Islander.
We started as four women who went to bed in horror on November 8th 2016, and woke up with a determination to make life better for our daughters and community, fighting for women’s rights, one topic at a time. We knew that if we started reaching out to other woman we could become catalysts for protecting the rights we envisioned would be attacked.
Out of this vision The Woman Project was born. The Woman Project will celebrate, educate and act on behalf of all women…. and it is growing every day. Join us in our bi-weekly meetings, volunteer or just show up to in one way or another through Woman Project initatives!
The Woman Project Manifesto
“Where Art meets Activism”
We love art and creativity.
We believe that art and creative work have the power to affect political discourse and effect change.
We are feminists who believe in intersectionality and are:
Pro-woman (all women identified people)
Pro-choice (we are only fully free if we have control of our bodies)
Pro-social justice (we are only fully free if we have social justice for all)
Pro-racial justice (we are only fully free if we have racial justice and equality for all)
Pro-environment (we are only fully free if we have a habitable and healthy planet to live on)
We are committed to collaborating with creative women to organize visual spectacles that have the power to incite lasting positive political and cultural change for our fellow citizens, our country, and the generations that will come after us.
