Workshop and Incubation Sessions at YWCA Port Moresby

Connecting communities for women’s rights

For four weeks starting in March 2015 Kendal Henry was in Papua New Guinea working with the local community to facilitate a series of public art projects that focused on the hot-button topic of gender equity in PNG. His visit began with the Women’s Forum, sponsored by the U.S. Embassy in Port Moresby. Next, he led a multi-day workshop that resulted in four community-driven projects as well as his own interactive digital media art project. Both the University of PNG and the YWCA partnered with American Arts Incubator to host and support these initiatives.
