1. What is Red Room Women Beyond Borders 2021, Taiwan?
A Traveling Exhibition in celebration of International Women’s Day (March 8, 2021) and Beyond.
First stop Taipei.

Red Room is excited to announce our collaboration with Women Beyond Borders. WBB is a non-profit, cross-cultural exhibition of women connecting women from all walks of life within and beyond their communities across the globe via a small, wooden box. Women from internationally known artists to women with no prior artistic experience, everywhere from Argentina to Zambia, have transformed these wooden boxes into a repository that contains a story from the artist.

WBB has had 900+ artist participants, over 10,000 student participants, and 50+ exhibitions worldwide. This project challenges geographical, political, ethnic, religious, and aesthetic boundaries. Since its inception, Women Beyond Borders has acted as a catalyst for change and cultural exchange worldwide. Red Room is honored to be a part of this movement and we invite all women, of all nationalities living on our beautiful island of Taiwan, to join our Red Room WBB traveling exhibition.
