In anticipation of International Women’s Day, artmejo and Al Balad Theater joined forces and launched an artistic online campaign entitled Anta/Anti. The campaign called for artists to participate with original work exploring the theme of gender equality.

We received over 200 entries from artists across the Middle East. 8 were selected to be printed out on postcards and distributed throughout the kingdom.

Our editors complied a list of their favourites entries to share:

-البيت هو جزء من حياة المرأة وليس مكانها الوحيد. مشاركتي ب هاشتاج #أنت_أنت لتسليط الضوء على المصاعب و التحيز المبني على النوع الجنسي. -The house is not the only place for women. This hashtag represents visual artworks about gender-based struggles and gender discrimination. @artmejo @albaladtheater
