We are extremely proud of the film we made with this young woman, in collaboration with Vital Voices, Priti Patkar and Prerana Anti-Human Trafficking. Hats off to HMC collaborators Max Bartick, Chris Mendes, Raj Desai, Pisei Chea and Dan Radlauer who all gave of themselves to make it beautiful. Glad to see she is doing well!

In the year 2005, a 4-year-old was enrolled in Prerana’s Kamathipura Night Care Centre. She was really young and took a while to adjust to the new environment. A few years later, her mother wanted her to move to a safer place, away from the threats of the red-light area. Finally, in the year 2010, she walked into Prerana’s Naunihal home for girls. Not much of a talker, she had always been fond of reading. It was in 2014 that we shared her story with the world (via this wonderful video (https://goo.gl/f8q871) put together by Vital Voices). Today, the girl you see in this video exudes confidence; a voracious reader she nurtures opinion articulately, and doesn't keep her knowledge to herself. When you visit our Naunihal shelter facility, you will find her either in the library reading about Sudha Murthy, Ambedkar or other personalities who inspire her or sharing her learnings. She is also an ardent badminton player. Currently, a 12th standard Arts student, she aspires to be a librarian. She aspires! And that makes us very happy.

At Prerana, we have always tried our best that the children who succumb to any form of abuse find a safe space to share, unwind, and most importantly, dream. We are glad to have been able to do that by offering consistent opportunities and providing a stable environment to grow. Soon after her 12th, she wants to enrol for a course to be a librarian. She dreams of being surrounded by books all her life, but the best part is she knows it is possible!

Tep Vanny - 2013 Vital Voices Global Leadership Awards, Leadership in Public Life Award

Not long ago, we made this short film about Tep Vanny and her neighbors on behalf of Vital Voices. She ends the film saying, "If ever we are silenced, tell our story." This week, Cambodia sentenced 4 of them to 6 months, labeling organized protests as "insulting a public official." This is nothing if not an attempt to silence them. Please sign this petition to help make sure Tep Vanny's story is known. http://buff.ly/2cQAs6x

Talking about gender (and by extension, gender-based violence) through art and stories takes finesse. This performance by our good friend Panmela S. Castro in Brazil is opening up a lot of conversations and changing minds. #WorkThatMatters. We're so proud of her and proud to be part of her ongoing story.

A performance foi realizada na Galeria Scenarium durante o lançamento da coleção apresentada na exposição EVA. O resultado de cinco anos de trabalho e obsessão sobre o mito do feminino.

A performance de fato, iniciou-se com a construção do personagem hyper feminino encarnado por mim, em minhas obras e vida durante os últimos anos e que foi desconstruído na ação de duração de uma hora. Neste processo o espetáculo é essencial pois eu poderia passar batom no espelho de casa, tatuar em um estúdio, cortar o cabelo no salão e trocar de roupa no meu quarto, mas o que faz desses atos uma performance são os valores da alteridade. Nada mais difícil do que lidar com o olhar do outro, e é neste sentido que se completa a obra.

A cerca desta nova relação com o público, a caricatura dá espaço à outros debates sobre gênero, e as possibilidades para explorar melhor as questões entre a ficção e a vida.
Ainda sobre o outro, as duas pessoas que poderiam de alguma forma impedir a plenitude da ação, opinaram por não participar: minha mãe que não avisada do que aconteceria, saiu em desespero no momento da performance, e meu companheiro que nem sequer apareceu, objetivando respeitar este meu momento.
