Public Art transforms places, and connects people

Public art transforms places and connects people. On the streets of Kathmandu, street art is also a powerful way to convey messages, and address social issues surrounded by stigma and shame. Domestic violence is one of them – every year, thousands of women in Nepal are victims of physical, emotional and sexual abuse, with their partners and close relatives often being the main perpetrators. Suicide is one of the leading causes of death among Nepalese women – often seen as the only escape route to chronic abuse and exploitation.
