Photo of the Month: April 2017

This April, we want to share a tiny glimpse of a few FRIDA faces together in a single frame. A few weeks ago, we organized ‘Happy Hour: Decolonising Philanthropy‘ in Seattle, United States, to talk more about FRIDA’s model of participatory grantmaking, the changing trends in philanthropy and the inspiring work of young feminists around the world […]

Outside the Lines of Spirit: FearlesslyFRIDA in Brazil

‘Nós Protegemos O que Nos Protege’ ‘We Protect What Protects Us’ The small town of Olivenca in Brazil is charmingly unassuming, but its winding streets and bridges are full of histories.

And this is how it finally looked: “In […]

Outside the Lines of Body: FearlesslyFRIDA in South Africa

‘I wear my body, without shame’ Images of the exposed African body have flooded colonial anthropological studies for centuries; either exoticised or allowed to be exposed when culturally sanctioned. But when acting upon it’s own autonomy the female body has also been used to claim space, and become an act of protest. The Fearless Collective collaborated […]
