Sudanese women artists from a range of artistic practices will join us to explore themes of love for fragrances, rituals, and resistance with sonic, audio-visual and sensory interludes.

This event includes a screening of Heroic Bodies, directed by Sara Suliman. The story of the development of women’s rights in Sudan is told through unique archive material and interviews with activists. We see and hear how women have been oppressed, ignored and abused for centuries, and what has changed.

Curated by Frédérique Cifuentes. Guest speakers include Sara El-Nager, Nasra Mamoun, Aisha Sharife, Safeguarding Sudan’s Living Heritage, Sara Suliman.
