Z-moves Multi-Media Art Educational Program

To support the Zonta International’s “Zonta Says No” Campaign to end violence against women, Zonta Club of Kowloon will join hands with the Association Concerning Sexual Violence Against Women (ACSVAW) to co-organize the Z-moves Multi-Media Art Educational Program in 2014. “Z-moves” means “Zonta Moves the World” and we aim to spread the “Zonta Says No” message through arts in order to end gender-based violence.

“Z-moves” is the first program of its kind in Hong Kong : a multi-media art educational program aimed at raising awareness of gender-based violence in Hong Kong. The number of target visitors to “Z-moves” is over 2,500. We will invite artists interested in the topic of gender violence to create artworks to arouse public involvement in the “Zonta says No” Campaign. The artworks will be displayed in the “Z-moves” Arts Festival. We hope that this will provide a new perspective of global sexual violence problem. Hong Kong young director Lai Yan Chi (2013 Hong Kong Spirit Ambassador, 2012 Ten Outstanding Young Persons Award) has been invited to produce a documentary focusing on gender violence problems in Asia, and this documentary will be premiered at the “Z-moves” Arts Festival to draw attention to the issue.

The “Z-moves” Program will collaborate with Zonta’s Golden-Z and Z Clubs to provide free art education activities for local secondary and university students. Through a series of workshops, arts will be used as impactful media to engage the public in open discussion on gender-based violence, with an aim of enabling young girls to learn about the human body through art forms, as well as issues relating to gender equality and gender-based violence. In so doing, our aim is for them to be equipped to defend themselves against violence.
