Event description


We invite you to share your perspective on gender-based violence (GBV) in Indonesia and the social changes you want to see in our society. You can convey your ideas creatively in a form that best suits your spirit and talent. That could be a short video (maximum 1-minute-long), an artwork (comic, painting, illustration), a meme (don’t forget to add a pinch of humor to your message), or a song (yes, a song of your own that calls for change!).

Your creative content should highlight one or more of the following themes:

  1. Changing the social norms that perpetuate and normalize violence against women and girls.
  2. Stopping catcalling directed at women and girls on the streets.
  3. Creating a safe workplace or safe campus with strict rules and policies for addressing sexual harassment and abuse.
  4. Respecting women’s personal life choices and bodily autonomy.
  5. Stopping online gender-based violence.
  6. Speaking out to end child marriage.
  7. Enacting and enforcing anti-sexual harassment laws.
  8. Showing what consent looks like.
  9. Encouraging people to be active bystanders.

Share your art on Facebook or Instagram or Twitter using the hashtags #orangechallenge #16days #orangetheworld for an opportunity to win a laptop or a mobile phone, plus limited edition UN merchandise for 10 selected creators!
