Women On Stage: Performance

We would like to invite you all to our celebration of poetry with participants from Women on Stage (WoS) on 21st of September. Through the year, WoS has worked with 22 women over the age of 25 in Kathmandu to write and speak their stories as spoken word poems, assisted by exploration of different art-forms like spoken word poetry, theater, creative movement and visual arts. As a part of the program we will have spoken word poetry performances, panel discussions, writing sessions and other fun activities to celebrate the women poets WW has engaged with through the campaign over this and previous year.

Word Warriors’(WW) Women on Stage (WoS) campaign for the year 2018-2019 supported by the British Council as a part of its Creating Heroines project will culminate in a one-day conference on 21st September. The conference will examine women in poetry in contemporary and historical Nepal, along with being a showcase of the WoS project. As a precursor to the Nepali poetry anthology by female writers that WW is working towards as a part of the project, the conference will also attempt to look at women writers in publication.

मञ्चमा महिलाबारे
मञ्चमा महिला कार्यक्रम वर्ड वारियर्सद्वारा थालिएको एक अभियान हो । यो कार्यक्रमले समावेशी, सहयोगी र रमाइलो वातावरणमा लेख्न र आफ्ना कथा सुनाउन महिलाहरूलाई एकसाथ ल्याउने गर्दछ । स्पोकन वर्ड पोएट्री, रंगमंच र भिजुअल आर्ट जस्ता विभिन्न कलाका विधाहरू समाहित गरेर पढ्ने र लेख्ने कार्यशालाको माध्यमबाट मञ्चमा महिला कार्यक्रमले विभिन्न नेपाली समुदायका महिलाहरूले आफू भित्र लुकेका रचनात्मकता, अभिव्यक्ति र सिकाइको रुचि पहिचान गरेर सोको विकास गर्ने सुरक्षित वातावरण सिर्जना गर्ने उदेश्य राख्दछ ।

This year, Women on Stage is being supported by the British Council as part of its Creating Heroines project.
यस वर्षको मञ्चमा महिला कार्यक्रम ब्रिटिस काउन्सिलको सहयोगमा क्रिएटिङ्ग हिरोइन्स प्रोजेक्ट अन्तर्गत संचालन भइरहेको छ ।

About Creating Heroines
Creating Heroines is a collaborative international project initiated by the British Council. Bringing together female artists, writers, graphic novelists, illustrators and animators, the project explores the themes of overlooked heroines from the past and imagines heroines for the future. It explores the stories behind the sidelined heroines of history and mythology, and uses them to inspire new creations including zines and cartoons. Creating Heroines aims to spark debate, challenge stereotypes & share women's stories.

क्रिएटिङ्ग हिरोइन्स ब्रिटिस काउन्सिलद्वारा थालिएको एक सहकारितापूर्ण अन्तर्राष्ट्रिय परियोजना हो । महिला कलाकार, लेखक, ग्राफिक उपन्यासकार, चित्रकार र एनिमेटरहरूलाई साथमा लिएर यो अभियानले अतीतका उपेक्षित प्रेरणादायी महिलाका विषयवस्तु बारे खोजि गर्दछ र भविष्यका प्रेरणादायी महिलाको कल्पना गर्दछ । यसले इतिहास र पुराणकथामा नजर अन्दाज गरिएका महिलाका पछाडिका कथाको खोज गरि त्यसलाई जिन (पत्रिका) र कार्टुन सहितका नयाँ सिर्जनाहरूका लागि प्रेरणा दिन तिनलाई प्रयोग गर्दछ । क्रिएटिङ्ग हिरोइन्सले बहस सुरू गर्ने, स्टेरियोटाइपलाई चुनौती दिने र महिलाका कथा बाड्ने उद्देश्य राख्दछ ।
