#metoo in the Indian Arts
This timeline was created for CAREspaces, a nonprofit founded as a result of the MeToo movement in the Carnatic Music community.
In October of 2018, the #metoo movement in Carnatic Music flooded our social media with stories that shook our community to its core. Despite the outcry from the community to address these cracks, these issues were met with silence from those who had the power to make change. This piece was created from the stories of the survivors, artists, and activists from the movement, with the words penned by the members of CAREspaces. It serves as a reminder of how cries for accountability, when met with inaction and silence, lend itself to cyclical and systemic dangers.
#metoo Timeline was part one of a three part series that contextualized the founding CAREspaces. The next two pieces that I created in this series are entitled "Reveal" and "Repair".
Note: The original piece was created as a horizonal timeline presented in an Instagram carousel. The following piece has been modified to be viewed in a vertical scroll.
