A brief overview of what to be discussed

The discussion will aim to celebrate and showcase women who use art and culture to uplift their communities and whose work link with some of the objectives of the National Arts Council which are to promote the appreciation, understanding, and enjoyment of the arts as well as to promote the general application of the arts in the community by using art and culture to shape their communities.

The discussion will further put a spotlight on the challenges faced by communities the panellists live or practice their art projects, and how they have used art and culture projects to help their communities move forward to a better place. The focus will be on marginalized communities which links to the NAC strategic plan of increasing access to all communities but with an emphasised focus on marginalized communities.
