The “It’s All In My Head” event, spearheaded by the award-winning artist Etinosa Yvonne and generously supported by Women Impacting Nigeria, unfolded as a powerful platform for survivors to share their stories and experiences shaped by cultural circumstances.
The event, comprising a town hall meeting and art exhibition, not only shed light on the often-overlooked narratives but also left an indelible impact on attendees.
The heart of the event lay in the compelling narratives shared by survivors, who bravely spoke about their experiences under the weight of cultural circumstances. These stories served as a poignant reminder of the importance of empathy, understanding, and collective action.
Etinosa Yvonne’s artistic prowess was evident in the thought-provoking pieces showcased during the art exhibition.
The open discussion facilitated by Etinosa Yvonne allowed attendees, including the dedicated volunteers of Women Impacting Nigeria, to engage in a meaningful dialogue. This interactive session sparked conversations on breaking cultural barriers and fostering a supportive community for survivors.
The Women Impacting Nigeria team expressed deep appreciation for the event’s depth and impact. Many found it to be a transformative experience, inspiring a renewed commitment to advocacy and support for survivors within their communities.
