BROOKLYN MUSEUM PROJECT

On Saturday, October 19, 2013, The Arts Effect’s Charlotte Arnoux lead members of The All-Girl Theater Company in an arts and activism live/improvised performance as part of BETWEEN THE DOOR AND THE STREET.  Devised by Suzanne Lacy and presented by the Brooklyn Museum’s Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art and the public arts group Creative Time, the goal of the project was to deliver a complex portrait of today’s feminism through the voices of women and girls who converged on the stoops and in the courtyards of Park Place (Brooklyn) to discuss gender-related aspects of issues like reproductive rights, immigration, and growing-up in the digital age.

We’re so proud to have been a part of the historic exhibition and we’re grateful for the talent, courage, inspiring intellect, and passion of Celia Babini, Maya Blake, Alexa Caban, Martine Fernandez, and Mira Maxwell.

EQUALITY NOW!

Katie & Meg were HONORED to collaborate with Equality Now for its 20th Anniversary Celebration co-hosted by MERYL STREEP, GLORIA STEINEM, and JANE FONDA.

Our very own SOPHIE HEARN and MARCELA BARRY represented The Arts Effect All-Girl Theater Company on April 19, 2012 at the Asia Society in NYC for a performance of Joss Whedon’s (Buffy The Vampire Slayer, Toy Story, The Avengers) beautiful piece When I Speak, directed by our wonderful colleague Laura Barnett.

The Arts Effect joined an inspiring group of women on stage – including Meryl Streep, Laura Linney, Sarah Jones, Debra Winger, and Jane Fonda – to raise awareness and funds in support of this amazing organization dedicated to ending violence against women and girls across the world.

Founded in 1992, Equality Now advocates for the human rights of women and girls around the world by raising international visibility of individual cases of abuse, mobilizing public support through our global membership, and wielding strategic political pressure to ensure that governments enact or enforce laws and policies that uphold the rights of women and girls. With offices in New York, Nairobi and London, our areas of focus include Discrimination in Law, Sexual Violence, Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) and Trafficking. Combining grassroots activism with international, regional and national legal advocacy, we envision a world in which women and men have equal rights under the law and full enjoyment of those rights.
