An Indian designer and a Pakistani women’s rights activist have teamed up to bring marginalized Pakistani communities together via art.
Nida Mushtaq, a sexual rights campaigner based in Pakistan, contacted Shilo Shiv Suleman, founder of community art project The Fearless Collective, after seeing the collective’s work. Suleman was invited to visit Pakistan and bring her murals with her. The Fearless Collective was started by Suleman in 2012. The project aims to create a narrative about gender violence and marginalized communities through the arts. Suleman travelled to Pakistan, a dangerous journey considering the country’s difficult history with India.
