Women have been around in the creative industry for many decades, yet the area is still considered a boys club. For centuries, art has been a male-dominated field. Even though there is a bigger presence of women in art today, decisive and creative opportunities that generate on-screen meaning seem to tilt towards their male peers.
Even though half of the visual artists in the world are women, they earn far less than men. Women and girls in arts face challenges from lack of skills to gender-based discrimination in their various fields of arts. This is a growing trend that goes back to history, igniting both scholarly and professional conversations regarding the patriarchal creative industry.
Girls in arts, therefore, seeks to support young girls in the field of arts to earn skills, especially in creative and decision-making positions to change the usual unpleasant and unfair on-screen presentation of women and to amplify the voices of women in the global scene.
This project focuses on transforming young girls from passionate artists to entrepreneurs whose contributions to the creative industry, and the national and global economy won’t go unnoticed. It is a fact that people should make a living from their careers, the creative industry is not an exemption
