A group of artists in Armenia known as Art + Activism today addressed a recent announcement made by Armenian Police in which they offered victim-blaming advice for women to avoid assault and harassment. Among the pieces of advice offered was guidance to avoid walking alone at night, and to dress in a ‘non-provoking’ way.
Art + Activism, who launched last month, are a group of Yerevan-based activist who use art to address social issues in Armenia. Their work is created in Armenian and English and has a focus on equality, social change and feminism. An English version of their most recent piece can be seen below:
