SHAP SHAP is a non-profit organisation created in 2015 to take action on global inequalities and racial and gender discriminations through cultural projects.
By participating in GSWF, SHAP SHAP aims at promoting culture as a tool to transform societies sustainably, in addition to the international human rights framework on which NGOs, institutions and civil society can rely to take action for global justice.
SHAP SHAP contributes to empowering the artistic, social, political and economic status of emerging and off-grid artists from the Global South (living in Africa and Latin America, from the diaspora, Afro-Latino descendants in Geneva) and from minorities who need support to emerge locally and internationally.
Supporting the production of creative works by female artists, LGBTQIA artists and artists from minorities from the Global South and facilitating their international mobility help them to benefit from a global visibility and to gain economic resources, autonomy and social protection.
Enabling a multiplicity of narratives and representations on stages and in the medias at a large scale also fully participates in fostering dialogues and raising awareness on inequalities and discriminations as to advocate for equality, diversity and more inclusive societies
