Held in the suitably urbane location of Jardins de les Tres Xemeneies, Womart JAM will crusade against sexism under the strapline of “arte contra el machismo.”
This unique event is hosted by Wallspot, an organization that manages the use of public spaces for artistic endeavors, and is exclusively open to female creatives registered on the platform. Ten artists will be selected and given the opportunity to grace the garden’s concrete canvases with their artwork, and to encourage others to do the same in a safe and collaborative environment.
The event coincides with the UN’s International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, which creates space for female empowerment and promotes gender equality within the urban arts sector. Art will be splashed over the free walls of both Madrid (Nov 28th) and Barcelona (Nov 29th) and is sure to be a hit with budding street artists and equal rights activists alike.
