Special Features

Artgaze is pleased to cover a wide range of topics and art forms but we do also host regular “special” features that we love to share and they’re easy to track via their categories.

Sistas on Art   

We are proud to launch this feature on International Womens’ Day 2016 and support the IWD campaign theme # Pledge for Parity.   Worldwide, women continue to contribute to social, economic, cultural and political achievement. However the The World Economic Forum predicted in 2015, a slowdown in the  pace of progress globally meant that gender parity wouldn’t possibly close at this rate until 2133. See the official site. IWD

The arts is an arena where nonprofit and alternative art organisations such as Artgaze Lab Inc. publishers of artgazemagazine can work as resources contesting the status quo. Current data shows disparity and gender inequity still exist within the arts for those who identify as women or a gender other than male, particularly in employement, wages, sales and exhibitions.

Artgazemagazine  want to hear from more women and from the LGBT community. We want to promote the emerging and established artists from these communities.

If you are an emerging or established artist, arts writer, cultural commentator or performer, musician etc. and want to support our call for contributions to the  Sistas on Art feature category check out our contribution guidelines Contribute Artgazemagazine and email us at artgaze@gmail.com.

Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening” – Coco Chanel
