Artist Expression of Interest

‘Women Speak Out: sharing stories, celebrating strengths ’


What and why?

The Reclaim the Night collective invites expression of interest from women artists to participate in the 2013 event ‘Women Speak Out; Sharing Stories, Celebrating Strengths’.

The event, to be held at Market Square on Friday 25th October 6-9pm, will include 12 exhibitions by local women. Each exhibitor will get a dedicated space to showcase their artwork including a table sized 1.8-.8 metres. 


The purpose of each exhibition/ stall is;

-        For artists who are interested in actively working to end violence against women to contribute to the Reclaim the Night event and utilize their medium to creatively share messages around women’s rights, including the right to live free from violence

-        For local women’s creativity to be exhibited, shared and celebrated

-        For aspects of women’s stories to be included in each exhibition to highlight the depth and variety of women’s experiences

RTN Collective is looking for expressions of interest from women who are interested in partnering on this event. There will be no cost to run a stall. Instead the aim is for each exhibitor to actively connect their work with the events theme of ‘Women Speak Out; Sharing Stories Celebrating Strengths’ as well as participate with the ‘Speak Out’ project which will be launched on the event night. Although exhibitors can sell items throughout the event it is aimed that the exhibition of works will be the focus of the stall rather than sales.


There will be a maximum of 12 exhibition stalls available at this event. Please note that due to small numbers all applications may not be successful. Applications are due 31st August 2013 and successful applicants will be notified on 14th September 2013.


Women Speak Out concept

At this year’s Reclaim the Night a ‘Speak Out’ display will be interwoven into all aspects of the event. The central aspect of this display will be two mannequins, one depicting ways women are sexualized within our society and the other depicting women’s strengths and skills.


Reclaim the Night (Geelong) will give each participating artist/group of artists and/or organisations exhibiting at WowFEST a Styrofoam women’s head to decorate, alter, embellish and/or dress in ways that express the 2013 WowFEST theme – Women Speak Out. The only rules are that your creation must positively express the ‘Women Speak Out’ theme, be respectful of all women and their rights and be created by women. The inclusion of this onto your stall will connect your exhibition to the ‘Speak Out’ broader display. Please feel free to include any additional material or creative work that is appropriate to the ‘Speak Out’ message(s) or story/ies of your Styrofoam head.

*Please feel free to contact us for further information or clarification.
