Phoebe Davies is a British artist who is collaborating with The Sibikwa Arts Centre to present Influences Nail Salon as part of the 16 Days for No Violence Against Women and Children.
The activist nail salon aims to put people in touch with contemporary feminism! It’s run by local women and will strive to create political and social exchange. Here, you’ll be able to have nail designs that depict influential and significant Southern African women applied – how cool is that? These women include everyone from Lilian Ngoyi to Miriam Makeba, Caster Semenya, Nompendulo Mkhatshwa, Naadiya Moosajee and Thuli Madonsela.
A group of women from The Sibikwa Arts Centre are working with Phoebe to explore attitudes to feminism, gender equality, expectations and aspirations. The group will apply sets of transfers to people free of charge! Treatments, a public programme of activities and events will be held on Saturday 28 November and will be curated by Ashley Whitfield, who will further unpack the notion of feminism.
Influences Nail Salon is open to the public and will be situated at unit 149, Newtown Junction Mall, Newtown between Thursday, 26 November to Saturday, 28 November from 10:00 to 17:00. All nail wraps and activities are FREE.
