Keeping Abreast aims to encourage artists to work in any medium to create artworks that respond to the theme of body image. Low body confidence, poor self-esteem or the trauma of breast cancer can have a crippling effect on an individual’s emotional and mental state of mind.
We will encourage artists to engage with some of these probing questions:
- How does social media affect one’s self-image and self-worth?
- How does competitive marketing affect young peoples self image and expectations?
- What does a health body look like and who even knows what BMI stands for?
- How do gender stereotypes effect our self-worth
