Photo Exhibition “Dignity”

Organized by NGO-CEDAW

From November 26 to December 9
Opening on November 28, 6pm

Organized by NGO-CEDAW

NGO-CEDAW is a coalition of 40 member NGOs and associations whose mission is to monitor and promote the implementation of the UN Convention on Elimination of all forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW) in Cambodia.

Dignity Cambodia is a project of NGO-CEDAW which uses art as part of its ongoing advocacy efforts to amend the laws related to gender-based violence and to promote gender equality in general.

Each year from November 26 to December 10 is the international 16 Days campaign against gender-based violence, and this year, NGO-CEDAW will host a Dignity exhibition from November 26 through December 9 showcasing the new work of Cambodian artists THA Linda, KHUON Viseth, and TO Malinda. These young artists collaborated to create a photo exhibit which asks viewers to question what they have been taught about how they should behave towards their spouses.

There will be an exhibition launch for the art from 6-9pm on November 28, 2019. At the launch, there will also be a showing of Mona SIMON’s film, “The Nun’s Path” which reflects on the journey of young Cambodian nun HENG Kosorl who believes that the path to enlightenment is equal for both men and women.

The exhibition is supported by the European Union and DCA through the Voices for Gender Equality project, and by the Heinrich Boll Foundation.
