Why we use Art?

WICSA uses art as a platform for advocating changes to women’s lives, starting in Nigeria, Africa. In 1998, we used the Arts - a travel museum of paintings and sculptures- as our first project to create awareness of the evils of female circumcision (FC) or Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) in Nigeria. This approach was so successful that it went global. The theme of the Nigerian art exhibition that produced the travel museum  was " FGM: The suffering. The Sorrow. The setback". Some the works from the travel museum collection are shown below.

Click on each art work to learn more about FGM and how the artists interpreted the theme " FGM: The Suffering. The Sorrow. The Setback".

AAGONY – AN EXPERIENCE I WILL NEVER FORGET by Stella Ubigho,(1998) depicts an FGM victim who is sitting on a pail of hot water so that the steam from the water can heal the circumcised genitalia. This painting depicts both the "Suffering" and the "Sorrow" from FGM
