Art to Inspire HER
Art is humanity’s great antidote to survive the problems of modern life, which is still little explored. This book was born as a result of Lucia Dalenz's interest in the role of art as a generator of resistance to power relations and orthodox discourses. It is a product of scientific research and her curiosity as an artist and ARTivist in putting the findings into practice.
The project Art to inspire HER was created as part of her participation as a 2016 - 2017 Global Champion for Women’s Economic Empowerment for UN Women’s Empower Women - which main objective is to encourage women and girls to achieve their economic empowerment of women and become leaders and change makers in their communities. This project embodies the spirit of the fight for women’s rights through a positive approach to women’s potential as entrepreneurs and active participants in national economies.
Through works of art based on the stories of successful women entrepreneurs, this project aims to empower and inspire women that are entering the realm of entrepreneurship. On the other hand, the purpose of this work is also to involve, expose and publicize the talent of emerging Latin American artists.
The online book has been produced in English and Spanish simultaneously.
