In occasion of the 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence Campaign the Italian artist Marilena Crosato organised a workshop and performance with a group of mamas working at the Market House in Port Vila Vanuatu. The mamas and young engaged girls became protagonist of the interactive live performance Aelan Gel / Island Daughters, showing their life challenges and their relationship with the power.

Alliance française de Port-Vila organised an exhibition where Marilena and I collaborated, showing a video of the process, photography and a poster I designed for the project.

The text in Vanuatu language bislama says : “We want that all the women in Vanuatu should not shut their mouths. They should not be silent. We should talk about Politics, School, Health, Respect, Violence, Money, Peace, Happiness, Business, Love, Kastom, Family, Religion, Sport, Music, everything ! Everything ! We want that all the women in Vanuatu should not be afraid.”
