Go Girl: Statement
We are a collaborative community of young creatives based in Belfast and Derry who believe in feminism, opportunity and inclusion. We believe in nurturing a network where women are understood, respected and supported in their individual endeavours. This network opens a dialogue between young women in our city who wish to collaborate, share and create in an environment which allows for freedom of expression without reprimand. We are creating a space of increasingly diverse creative activity in Belfast and beyond and beginning to showcase our talents and ambitions through art, music, theatre and design. This is a mixed media exploration of our work and collaborative efforts, an explosion of everything we are and hope to represent. All Go Girls are invited to participate, we revolt against the elitist sentiments which prohibit easy entry into the art world and instead allow all of our girls to come and share in a celebration of what we stand for.
We are Go Girl.
