Rooted: An Expression of Women and Girls Refining Cultural Harmony

Oct 30, 2022 - Jan 15, 2023

Presented by: Girl 24

The photography experience Rooted was conceived by GIRL 24, a business mentoring initiative for girls and women, that teaches the importance of being good businesswomen, committing to a lifestyle of positive influence as Gifted, Ingenious, and Refined Leaders. The initiative seeks to initiate girls’ aspirations of entrepreneurship and business interest by preparing them for the mastery of their own Good brand.

The Rooted exhibition embraces the art of storytelling through the eyes of girls and women born from many different roots but sharing the same inner-warrior and courage to create multi-cultural harmony. For centuries, hair has been a sign of individual uniqueness and expression that impacts the world and removes racial barriers. In Spring 2022, Rooted unveiled a live runway-style art walk at the Dixon Gallery and Gardens that featured the work of 20 girls of different ages, their creative processes and their final “Mane of Art”, personally modeled during the event.

The photographs you see here are a glimpse of the experiences that Rooted offered to the participants and included workshops on empathy, self-esteem, and creativity.
