Creative Workshops with the Persons with Disabilities Cluster

Mersey, one of the participants of the SHE Project creative workshops shared that, “ang masasabi ko lang happy, nakikita ko iyong ibang deaf, kung ano ang nararamdaman nila. We collaborate with each other and it’s fun.”

Last March and April 2022, the University of the Philippines Center for Women’s and Gender Studies (UPCWGS) conducted the creative movement, visual, and life stories workshops with the persons with disabilities cluster in pursuit of the arts-based research project.

The arts-based research project aims to pioneer a more innovative, engaging, and accessible approach to the sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) and gender-based violence (GBV) prevention discourse through its arts-based methodology, while also widening the constituency for advocacy by drawing on the feminist standpoint epistemology to find approaches appropriate for sectors with different perspectives.

The video highlights were developed and produced by the Feminist Media Lab for the UPCWGS and OXFAM Philippines.
