GCRF GlobalGRACE (Global Gender and Cultures of Equality)

Lead Research Organisation: Goldsmiths University of London
Department Name: Anthropology

Abstract

In recent years there have been significant advances made internationally to raise awareness about gender inequalities. International organisations including the United Nations have also sought to ensure that the creation of more equitable futures for women and men are at the heart of global change and sustainable development. Despite those advances, gender inequalities persist in myriad forms and negatively affect the health and wellbeing of people the world over in a variety of ways, from constraining access to opportunities and resources to fostering gender based violence. We recognise the importance of both international bodies and national states and governments in agenda setting, enacting progressive legislation and adopting gender positive policies, as well as the work of those political activists who are at the forefront of pressing for these changes. However, this project is focused on the way that cultures of equality are being built and created from the ground up. We do so by investigating the creative ways that people and organisations in developing countries respond to and seek to address existing inequalities and enhance the wellbeing of people marginalised as a result of those. Our aim is disclose the ways that those everyday responses not only address harms, but also become opportunities for broader societal impact through creating new and alternative cultures of equality.

How and in what ways does the proposed research use art, curation, literature and performance to address these challenges? Our answer, following the novelist Jeanette Winterson, is that, 'Everything starts as a story we tell ourselves about ourselves'. By that Winterson means that so long as we remain capable of telling different stories about our own and other lives, there is the possibility of creating more equitable and sustainable futures for all of us. That is our understanding of what cultures of equality are about: working with and alongside people both to disclose the situations of inequality and the bodily and mental impacts of that on them and the people they care for, and to begin to tell different stories about what their lives ought and could be. As scholars working across the humanities and social sciences we think there are considerable advantages to using different arts based practice including creative writing, dance, exhibitions, music, theatre, performance or social media in this process. These different multisensory methods enable people to share things about their lives that may be too sensitive and threatening to talk about directly. They also create opportunities not just to tell different stories but also to tell them in new and different sorts of ways. Our project draws together and creates new partnerships between people and organisations from across the world in and beyond the academy. In so doing we will share expertise and learn from each other about how we can best use these arts based research practices, both to enable us to better hear and understand the stories people tell, and to find better ways of using those stories to create the conditions that underpin and will enhance the economic development and welfare of all people.

Planned Impact

This project is concerned with the development, welfare and wellbeing of people in lower income countries who are marginalised by a range of intersecting gender inequalities. Through art events and exhibitions we seek to make visible the embodied experiences of those intersecting forms of inequality and their impact on people's wellbeing, broadly conceived, and demonstrate how these situations of marginality may become sites for challenging social divisions and producing new cultures of equality.

1. Marginalised people in DAC listed lower - middle income countries
The first beneficiaries of our work will be the people who participate as co-curators in the community based art events. Participating in performative events and curating visual images will afford people opportunity to creatively convey something of the everyday and embodied impacts of intersecting inequalities on their wellbeing, reflect on the key issues or interventions that might enhance their situation and enable them to make visible the way that their own work and lives contribute to making cultures of equality otherwise.

2. Project Partners and Community Based Organisations
The participation of third sector organisations in planning the research and contributing to community based art events will both encourage, and provide models for, an expanded use of art and other performative events to stimulate critical conversations about the relation between gender and development, wellbeing and the production of cultures of equality. These may then be extended to other similar community based organisations. The events aim also to increase investment in, and participation of marginalised people, in the work of these civic organisations that provide vital welfare services for their constituents but frequently struggle to find the resources needed to continue their work.

3. Policy Makers and Advocacy Groups
The principle benefits for policy makers and advocacy groups are threefold:
a) an enhanced awareness of the relation between intersecting inequalities and diminished wellbeing;
b) better appreciation of the way that NGOs and other project partners are meeting the welfare needs of marginalised peoples and pressing for changes to address the underlying issues of inequality; and
c) an opportunity to consider whether, and if so how, official equalities discourse may be critiqued and extended through engagement and encounter with alternative visions and versions of equality.

4. Impact on arts practitioners & museums
The exhibitions and events will include curated images, sound and text from the community arts based projects. Together the events and exhibitions will encourage art practitioners to consider how and in what ways visual and performing arts might become involved in dialogues about gender, wellbeing and development. More broadly this project proposes an alternative to how anthropological museums and exhibitions deal with contemporary forms of diversity issues: usually objects from the stores, dealing with the lives of past peoples. Our project will encourage museums and galleries to consider their role in dialogues about contemporary development and to reflect on ways that they might practically become sites for the production of cultures of equality.

5. General public impact
Wide public engagement at the exhibitions, workshops, discussions held as part of this project, as well as through digital forms of dissemination and dialogue, is seen as an essential element of this project. That includes, but is not limited to, the planned Global Museum of Equalities and the GlobalGRACE open access online course. Our aim is to raise public interest in and awareness about the relations between intersecting inequalities and diminished wellbeing, and encourage better appreciation and understanding of the creative cultural practices that enable people to overcome the obstacles they face in sustaining their lives.

Title 'Exchanging Cultures of Equality' 
Description Exchanging Cultures of Equality was installed in the Kingsway Corridor of the Richard Hoggart Building at Goldsmiths, University of London, 21 June-1 July 2018, co-curated by Siobhán McGuirk and Nirmal Puwar. The exhibition marked the launch of the Global Gender and Cultures of Equality (GlobalGRACE) project. The exhibition explored modes of exchange between Goldsmiths and collaborators from six countries: Bangladesh, Brazil, Mexico, the Philippines, South Africa, and the UK, and was the first iteration of an ongoing artistic project which sees the project partners collaboratively creating a 'global museum of equalities.' The exhibition Exchanging Cultures of Equality marks the starting point of a curatorial conversation in which we consider: what does it mean to create, and to communicate "cultures of equality" transnationally? What does it mean to request, send, exchange and migrate materials, ideas and visuals in a global and historical context? We began our modality of exchange by requesting from each team six Postcards, each featuring one image and up to fifty words, and one Object labelled with a text of up to fifty words. 
Type Of Art Artistic/Creative Exhibition 
Year Produced 2018 
Impact As the first practical step in the GlobalGRACE project's commitment to developing a 'global museum of equalities' this exhibition had a very effective pre-planned impact on the researchers of the project, as the development of the exhibition included all researchers, the majority of whom had no previous experience in this field. Firstly through email and then face-to-face in London (where the researchers had all gathered for the first of the project's planned 'Partnership and Capability Events') the network collaborated on the preparation of the exhibition, led by Siobhán McGuirk and Nirmal Puwar from WP6. Working relationships were developed, common definitions and understandings were produced and practical skills and knowledge were shared, leaving the whole network considerably better trained and prepared for the future artistic and creative activities that all will be involved in. The public were also impacted upon, with evidence collected through creative feedback methods at the exhibition which involved visitors completing postcards, continuing a theme developed through the exhibition.

Title Re/Locating Cultures of Equality: A GlobalGRACE virtual exhibition 
Description The closing GlobalGRACE exhibition was due to launch in June 2021 in Cape Town, before touring project partner sites. We had looked forward to co-presenting our work, produced over the four preceding years, and to exploring possible new framings as it travelled from place to place. The global coronavirus pandemic interrupted our plans, and much more besides, from early 2020. Deciding to mount a virtual exhibition invited new considerations. We did not want to lose sight of partners' distinct artistic, aesthetic and political orientations, but knew that digital renderings of objects and events cannot capture nuances of tactility or place. At the same time, we recognised that the pandemic had enforced necessarily distanced, frequently virtual, modes of living and working. New reflections intertwined with original curatorial goals, to demonstrate processes of (re)creating cultures of equality, identify parallels and affinities between disparate locales, and explore the challenges and rewards of transnational collaboration - from wires crossed to joyful synchronicities. This resulting exhibition, Re/Locating Cultures of Equality is divided into three areas: Installations are created specifically for online interaction but remain grounded in site-specific methods and modes. All are juxta- and superim-posable onto snapshots of places a physical exhibition might otherwise have been, gesturing to the (im)possibilities of relocation/reframing on- and offline. Six Films explore varied themes and multiple artforms through a single, unifying medium. Thirty Postcards reveal connecting threads between collaborators and trace transformations of material culture (and interpersonal communication) through digitisation and display. We invite you to explore and jump between projects, themes, or forms as you choose, or to delve deeper into each via our sister Online Course and Project sites. To broaden access, the site language and resolution settings are adjustable, and pages can be saved for viewing off-line. Re/Locating Cultures of Equality does not mark the 'final' GlobalGRACE exhibition. A complementary live exhibition, Dis/Locating Cultures of Equality, was held on Goldsmiths campus September-October 2021, and other GlobalGRACE exhibitions have and will continue to take place, at and beyond partner sites. Our conversations continue. 
Type Of Art Artistic/Creative Exhibition 
Year Produced 2022 
Impact The exhibition was only launched in Feb 2022 and further impacts arising will be reported on in future years.

Title WP1 - Covid Waarheid/Covid's Truth (South Africa) 
Description Through 2020 and a series of lockdowns and social distancing requirements the GlobalGRACE Sex Workers Theatre Group in Cape Town (South Africa) worked collaboratively using virtual tools to develop, script, rehearse and perform an original theatrical piece entitled Covid Waarheid/Covid's Truth, through which they explored the gendered experiences of South African sex workers during the pandemic. There were four performances in September 2020 at the Theatre Arts Theatre (Cape Town, South Africa), and as social distancing regulations meant the audience at each was limited to 15, the performance was livestreamed on Youtube, Instagram and Facebook, and then produced into a film with interviews of Sex Workers Theatre Group members, which is available through the link below. 
Type Of Art Performance (Music, Dance, Drama, etc) 
Year Produced 2020 
Impact Whilst the potential for in-person Impact was greatly reduced by Covid restrictions, the subsequent decision to both livestream and then display online the performance greatly increases the potential for impact across wider geographical areas.

Title WP1 - Intando Yam: My Choice (Original theatrical piece performed by the Sex Workers Theatre Group, Cape Town, South Africa) 
Description After extensive rehearsal an original piece entitled 'Intando Yam: My Choice' had four debut performances on 1, 2 and 3 August 2019 at the Theatre Arts Admin Collective, Cape Town, South Africa. The performances were very well attended and the feedback was affirming and constructive. Lucy O'Connell, the Regional Key Populations Focal Point for MSF Southern Africa attended and expressed an interest in pursuing a collaboration between our project and MSF in southern Africa, and in particular, Beira Mozambique where a Sex Worker street theatre group called 'Tendene', has been formed. 
Type Of Art Performance (Music, Dance, Drama, etc) 
Year Produced 2019 
Impact These were the first performances of an original piece which was conceived, developed, rehearsed and performed by members of the Sex Workers Theatre Group in South Africa, a theatrical group founded with GlobalGRACE funding and support as part of the Cape Town based Work Package 1. For the participants, all sex workers, this was a considerable achievement and contribution to their efforts to force greater gender equality and recognition of well-being for themselves and their community. Over three nights of performance on 1, 2 and 3 August 2019 at the Theatre Arts Admin Collective, Cape Town, South Africa their performances were seen by 210 people from the general public, stakeholder groups, NGOs, students and scholars, greatly raising awareness of the issues that are important to them. Lucy O'Connell, the Regional Key Populations Focal Point for MSF Southern Africa attended and expressed an interest in pursuing a collaboration between our project and MSF in southern Africa, and in particular, Beira Mozambique where a Sex Worker street theatre group called 'Tendene', has been formed.

Title WP1 - Interactive Theatre methodology for auditions for Sex Worker Theatre Group (South Africa) 
Description Two 90-minute workshop auditions involved various collaborative exercises and performance-making tasks that were primarily focused on improvisation and play. A total of 24 auditioned. The auditions were facilitated by Sara Matchett, Jackie Nakazibwe and Clinton Osborne from the theatre recruitment sub-committee. An external panel of assessors made up of two theatre and performance lecturers, and one Postgraduate student, were involved as external evaluators. Phoebe Kisubi filmed/documented the process. Yaliwe Clarke and two members of the other members of the theatre recruitment sub-committee (Ruvimbo Tenga, and Mercy Remba) observed the workshop. An outline of the bespoke audition workshop plan was made available as a guiding document for future projects of this nature and will be accessible to the rest of other GlobalGRACE work packages via online platforms. 
Type Of Art Performance (Music, Dance, Drama, etc) 
Year Produced 2018 
Impact This bespoke performance exercise was developed to be specifically tailored to the wellbeing needs and concerns of the sex worker cohort. These non-professional actors were completely untrained at this point and the team were very much aware that a traditional audition model risked placing great pressure on the cohort and would have been counterproductive in terms of developing confidence and promoting long-term engagement with the project. Over the 18 months since the auditions were held we have seen a considerable impact on the confidence and comfort of the cohort, with the groundwork laid through this Interactive Theatre methodology for auditions paying dividends also in terms of engagement and retention amongst members of the Sex Worker Theatre Group. 
 
Title WP1 - Sex Workers Theatre Group performance at launch of SWEAT's exhibition 'A likeness Embodied' at UWC (South Africa) 
Description On 10 October 2019 the Sex Workers Theatre Group performed a short original dramatic piece at launch of project partners SWEAT's exhibition 'A likeness Embodied' hosted by the University of the Western Cape's Department of Women and Gender Studies' 
Type Of Art Performance (Music, Dance, Drama, etc) 
Year Produced 2019 
Impact The exhibition launch was attended by over 100 staff and students at the University of the Western Cape's library in Cape Town, South Africa. This raised the profile of Work Package 1 of Global GRACE within South African academia. 
 
Title WP1 - Sex Workers Theatre Group performance of 'Yeki' Hambe: let it go' (South Africa) 
Description After developing, scripting and extensive rehearsal the Sex Workers Theatre Group performed an original piece entitled 'Yeki' Hambe: let it go' on 28, 29, 30 November 2019 at the University of Cape Town's Bindery Lab Theatre in South Africa. The performances were well attended and, as with their first production, the feedback was affirming and constructive. It was evident that the theatre group had grown considerably in terms of skill and confidence, and that through the space and resourses provided by the GlobalGRACE project they were developing more effective means and methods for representing their experiences of gender inequality and negative impacts on their wellbeing. 
Type Of Art Performance (Music, Dance, Drama, etc) 
Year Produced 2019 
Impact The four performances were attended by a total of 320 audience members from the general public, university community, stakeholder groups and NGOs, a significant increase on the numbers who had attended their first performances three months earlier, and generating Social Impact and Gender Equality Impact through sex workers taking a platform through which to discuss the issues of gender oppression which they face.

Title WP1 - Sex Workers Theatre Group public performance on Hanover Street, Cape Town, South Africa 
Description On 19 November 2019 the Sex Workers Theatre Group staged a performance of an original piece on Hanover Street, Cape Town, on the route of the Social Justice Coalition's 'Right to Protest' march, which was attended by an estimated 5000 members of the South African public. 
Type Of Art Performance (Music, Dance, Drama, etc) 
Year Produced 2019 
Impact In performing on the route of such a large public gathering the Sex Workers Theatre Group were able to disseminate information about the gender inequalities and negative impacts on wellbeing suffered by sex workers in South Africa to a large and diverse audience of the general public. 
 
Title WP1 - WhatsApp Soapie (South Africa) 
Description November 2019 the Sex Workers Theatre Group in Cape Town, South Africa, launched their first WhatsApp 'Soapie'. The theatre group and GlobalGRACE team produced a performance of their original work 'Intando Yam: My Choice' which was broadcast on WhatsApp, in a popular South African format that is known as a 'Soapie'. Their work, which explored police harassment and sexual exploitation, social stigma, moral double-standards, sex worker solidarities, fantasies and play was scripted and performed by the group and then shared with other sex workers in South Africa and internationally, providing an opportunity for this discriminated group to represent their lives and stories within their community 
Type Of Art Artefact (including digital) 
Year Produced 2019 
Impact The Soapie was a significant means for the Sex Workers Theatre Group to internationalise their performances and seek to form networks with similar staeholder groups and associated NGOs beyond their borders.

Title WP2 - 'Imagining Gender In/equality' exhibition in Sylhet, Bangladesh 
Description On 9 & 10 July 2019 at the Shahjalal University of Science and Technology, Sylhet, Bangladesh the WP2 team held the 'Imagining Gender In/equality' exhibition. Student film and photographic societies at SUST have been working with the GlobalGRACE to run workshops for female construction workers, and these students submitted photographs and short films produced through mobile phone technology that speak to issues of gender in/equality and aspirations for more equitable gender futures in contemporary Bangladesh. The participants produced 1 minute original short films using mobile phone technology. Photography students submitted original photography/photo stories. The films and photographs addressed contemporary issues of gender in/equality in Bangladesh through an autobiographical lens, drawing on personal experiences and aspirations for more equitable gender futures 
Type Of Art Artistic/Creative Exhibition 
Year Produced 2019 
Impact For the middle-class population who predominate in the universities of Bangladesh the lives and experiences of their impoverished compatriots are seldom encountered, so this exhibition provided a valuable forum for not only dissemination of the GlobalGRACE project but also a means for female construction workers' voices to penetrate elite spaces.

Title WP2 - 'Swimming Against the Tide: Women doing 'men's' work in Sylhet Bangladesh' Exhibition, Kolkata (India) 
Description From the 14th-18th March 2020 the Bangladesh GlobalGRACE took an exhibition of photography produced by female construction workers in Sylhet (Bangladesh) to the Gallery Gold (Kolkata, India). The exhibition focused on gender equality and working conditions from the perspective of the marginalised female construction workers and the exhibition was both open to the Indian public in general and special tours were organised for Indian female construction workers, industry representatives, associated NGOs and scholars. 
Type Of Art Artistic/Creative Exhibition 
Year Produced 2020 
Impact This approach proved to be a very effective means of forming international networks of female construction workers, as many Indian workers who visited the exhibition were interviewed by the research teams, and plans for international exchanges made. Unfortunately the pandemic has caused these plans to be cancelled as international travel is impossible and/or unadvisable. As of March 2021 it seems unlikely that these plans can be revived before the project end.

Title WP2 - 'Swimming Against the Tide: Women doing 'men's' work in Sylhet Bangladesh' Virtual Exhibition 
Description From July 27th to August 13th 2020 the Bangladesh team mounted a virtual exhibition of ''Swimming Against the Tide: Women doing 'men's' work in Sylhet Bangladesh' using the professional exhibition platform KUNSTMATRIX. The virtual platform allowed the team to open up the photographic art produced by female construction workers within GlobalGRACE workshops to an global audience, following their in-person pre-pandemic exhibitions in Sylhet and Dhaka (Bangladesh) and Kolkata (India). This greatly increased the scope and range of the dissemination of the project's artistic outputs. 
Type Of Art Artistic/Creative Exhibition 
Year Produced 2020 
Impact The female construction workers who produced the artworks exhibited reported considerable boosts to self-esteem and self-belief from the successive exhibition of their artwork in their hometown (Sylhet, Bangladesh), national capital (Dhaka, Bangladesh), neighbouring nation (Kolkata, India) and finally to a global audience. Two years previously not one of them had ever taken a photograph, so the opportunity to see their work, and themselves, exhibited was a life-changing experience.

Title WP2 - Bangladesh Film Archive 
Description A archive of films on the lives and experiences of female construction workers in Sylhet, Bangladesh, produced by the female construction workers and the research team. 
Type Of Art Artefact (including digital) 
Year Produced 2021 
Impact The process of producing these artistic outputs through workshops and participatory methodologies gave rise to the female construction workers' manifesto, described elsewhere on ResearchFish.

Title WP2 - Bangladesh Photo Stories 
Description A series of Photo Stories on the lives and experiences of female construction workers in Sylhet, Bangladesh, produced by the female construction workers and the research team. 
Type Of Art Artefact (including digital) 
Year Produced 2021 
Impact The process of producing these artistic outputs through workshops and participatory methodologies gave rise to the female construction workers' manifesto, described elsewhere on ResearchFish. 
URL https://www.globalgracebd.net/photo-stories.html
 
Title WP2 - Sylhet Community Festival (Bangladesh) 
Description On February 26th 2020 the WP2 team staged a large-scale exhibition consisting of films, photos, material culture (crafting embroidered panels of lives of women participants and their toolkits) in the form of a community festival in Sylhet, Bangladesh. Photography, short films, and handicrafts produced by and with the female construction worker cohort were exhibited in the festival, which was co-curated by research participants, researchers, NGO workers and student collaborators from the photography and film societies at the Shahjalal University of Science and Technology (SUST). The festival was attended by research participants and their families, as well as a significant number of members of the general public from their wider communities. 
Type Of Art Artistic/Creative Exhibition 
Year Produced 2020 
Impact The overriding priority was to celebrate the female construction workers and make visible thier lives, experiences, and contributions to wider society, all of which tend to be marginalised and overlooked. Significant efforts were made to create a celebratory and positive environment, and the inclusion of food, films, music, dance and entertainment were very successful in drawing an audience of 500 members of the general public, thereby having a considerable Social Impact on improving perceptions of and respect for these female construction workers, something that was revealed through audience feedback. 
 
Title WP3 - Dance Performance 'NaManha' - Brazil 
Description On the 17th September 2020 the GlobalGRACE Brazil team presented a performance of the original dance piece 'NaManha', performed live at the Arena Dicro venue in Rio de Janeiro (Brazil), and livestreamed on Youtube and Instagram to an audience of 885, we presume primarily Brazilians. The performance was by the favela-based dance company 'Passinho Carioca' and emerged from the 2nd GlobalGRACE Brazil Artistic Residency, during which Passinho Carioca with the GlobalGRACE Brazil team, the community organisation 'Mulheres Ao Vento', and specially invited expert workshop leaders. Together worked in person until March 2020, and therefore mainly virtually due to Covid-19, on the research, development, choreography, rehearsal and staging of an original piece, 'NaManha', which explores positive masculinities in the face of gendered and racial inequalities. In 2021 the performance toured through cultural spaces in Rio de Janeiro, and the film was made publicly available (see link below). 
Type Of Art Performance (Music, Dance, Drama, etc) 
Year Produced 2021 
Impact The most notable impact to date has been the development of the dance company 'Passinho Carioca'. An amateur group of Afro-Brazilian dancers from favela communities they benefited from the resources and expert advice provided during the residency to not only develop an original performance, but also develop arts management capacity. Further to this, after the performance they were supported in using the filmed performance for fund raising activities to both support the professionalisation and sustainability of the group. Further social and gender equality impacts are planned following the public launch of the documentary.

Title WP3 - EXPOSIÇÃO MASCULINIDADES EM DIÁLOGO 
Description Exhibition from May 08- June 12, 2021 entitled 'Masculinities in Dialogue' of artworks produced by participants in the third GlobalGRACE Brazil Artistic Residency (ELÃ 2021). Both residency and exhibition were held at the art gallery Galpão Bela Maré in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. 
Type Of Art Artistic/Creative Exhibition 
Year Produced 2021 
Impact Over one thousand members of the public visited the exhibition, both in person and in its online iteration (see link below). They were mostly residents of the favela communities of Maré and neighbouring favelas, and the education and outreach team at the gallery also organised and ran special tours and activities with local schools and civil society organisations.

Title WP3 - Public Exhibition 'Masculinidades NoBela' (Brazil) 
Description From 13th to 20th November 2019 WP3 staged the Public Exhibition 'Masculinidades NoBela' of artworks created during a two month artistic residency conducted by Dr Jimmy Turner as a research/artist with three graffiti artists who were paid as artist/researchers. They spent the two months discussing and planning and then producing an artistic exhibition of original artworks produced during the residency, all at the Bela Maré gallery in Maré, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Partners Observatório de Favelas and Instituto Maria e João Aleixo hosted and facilitated the residency and exhibition, which was attended by over 200 members of the local community and several visitors from the wider Rio de Janeiro area. 
Type Of Art Artistic/Creative Exhibition 
Year Produced 2019 
Impact The exhibition was the first to be staged in Rio de Janeiro which used the artistic language of graffiti to focus not just on gender equality, but on masculinities specifically. Feedback revealed that this opened up discussions and awareness of gender equality to new audiences, as well as representing forms of masculinity, such as black homosexual masculinity, which are seldom positively represented. 
 
Title WP5 - English-language artistic infographic Disseminating Findings from Research into Migration, Education and Development in Chiapas, Mexico 
Description In December 2019 the WP5 team in Mexico produced an English-language infographic documenting and disseminating research findings into Migration, Education and Development conducted by WP5. 
Type Of Art Artefact (including digital)

Title WP5 - Migrant Museum Exhibition in Mare favela in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil 
Description In May-June 2019 the WP5 team travelled to Brazil to exhibit their work with the Migrant Museum (MuMi) at the Bela Maré art gallery in Rio de Janeiro. This exhibition of photographs and information from the Migrant Museum (MUMI) and a series of associated educational activities organsied and delivered in partnership between VocesMesoamericanos and IMJA were delivered free to the favela community. 
Type Of Art Artistic/Creative Exhibition 
Year Produced 2019 
Impact The exhibition and educational activities in Mare, Rio de Janeiro were the first time that the Migrant Museum was exhibited in a Latin American country outside of Mexico, and therefore were a significant step in the internationalisation of the museum. Over 500 local residents from the favela community of Mare visited the exhibition and participated in the educational activities, marking a significant moment in the development of transnational community and solidarity building.

Title WP5 - Migrant Museum Tour of the Highlands of Chiapas, Mexico 
Description From March 2019 to January 2020 the WP5 GlobalGRACE team in Mexico toured with the Migrant Museum throughout the Highlands of Chiapas, visiting indigenous communities of Tsotsil and Tseltal peoples, holding workshops of participatory theatre and exhibitions of photography and film, and disseminating the project and artworks generated through it through exhibitions of photography and film. 
Type Of Art Artistic/Creative Exhibition 
Year Produced 2019 
Impact The quantity and diversity of people with whom the GlobalGRACE WP5 team was able to interact as they accompanied the Migrant Museum through its tour of the Chiapas Highlands was significant, and this enabled the team to interact with a large population in a rural and largely decentralised region of southern Mexico. 
 
Title WP5 - Para Volvernos A Encontrar - To Find Us Again 
Description GlobalGRACE Mexico (WP5) produced in 2021 a series of postcards designed to educate the public about their awareness-raising work on human rights in migration, with outline images that people are invited to colour-in. The postcards were distributed to schools, communities, and organizations, with encouragement for people to print and colour them by hand. 
Type Of Art Artefact (including digital) 
Year Produced 2021 
Impact In addition to disseminating the research of the Mexico team these were designed to draw upon the therapeutic value of artistic activities such as colouring in, inviting the public to participate in the artistic process of creation.

Title WP6 - Dis/locating Cultures of Equality: A GlobalGRACE exhibition 
Description A collaborative artistic exhibition disseminating the research conducted by all GlobalGRACE partners in an artistic format. The exhibition was staged and curated by Dr Siobhan McGuirk and was designed as a Covid-secure outdoor exhibition in the 'College Green' space on the Goldsmiths campus in London. The exhibition was accompanied by a soundscape which was accessed by QR codes and GPS technology via the smartphones of visitors. 
Type Of Art Artistic/Creative Exhibition 
Year Produced 2021 
Impact The exhibition was seen by thousands of Goldsmiths students and staff as well as visitors and the general public from outside the Goldsmiths community. A series of guided tours and talks accompanied the exhibition, and increasing the dissemination of GlobalGRACE research findings to thousands of people. 
 
Description The GlobalGRACE Project tackled key challenges in Human Rights, Good Governance and Social Justice, especially reducing 'poverty and inequality, including gender inequalities', being based within two of the four of the UK's Official Development Assistance (ODA) priorities, generating positive Social Impact and Gender Equality. We recognise the importance of both international bodies and national governments in effecting such change, but GlobalGRACE is concerned with investigating the creative ways that people and organisations respond to and address intersectional gender inequalities and strengthen people's wellbeing. We sought to learn from, share and strengthen people's creative and artistic practices as a means to understand their experiences of inequality, challenge the systems of privilege that create inequality and diminish wellbeing, and imagine alternative and more equitable ways of living together. Our key achievements in meeting these objectives were:

1. The establishment of networks and partnerships. Meaningful research and social impact can only be generated through engaging and mobilising networks which include a representative range of people and groups, particularly when seeking to investigate existing inequalities and promote intersectional gender equality. We created a new and expansive network of feminist, queer and gender studies researchers which included established and early career researchers based in Universities, NGOs and civil society organisations in and beyond the DAC-listed territories in which our core partners are based, namely Bangladesh, Brazil, Mexico, Philippines, and South Africa, as well as in the UK. We collectively agreed a system of governance, including principles of best practice, to ensure equitable and effective partnerships between differently positioned people and organisations within and outside academia. Our research was predominately led by the Global South, where most of our researchers are based, and the project facilitated South-South, and South-North mobility and collaboration leading to significant outputs. Eschewing established practices of basing the majority of the research team in UK Universities, who then travel to conduct research 'in the field', means that we are able to enhance our social impact in the societies of the DAC-listed countries where our partners live and work, and create localised economic impact and capacity strengthening through increased resource transfers and expenditures in universities and NGOs in DAC-listed countries.

2. Throughout the project lifespan we developed and deployed new and innovative multi-modal and multi-sensory methods and collaborative practices which drew from the arts and social sciences to investigate and provide meaningful accounts of people's experiences of intersecting inequalities, making clear contributions to gender equality and realising impacts on wellbeing. To go beyond systems of extractive knowledge production we avoided ready-made sets of methods that are neatly packaged and rigidly applied, thereby maximising social impact through tailoring our approach to the situations within and across the DAC-listed countries where we worked and ensuring our methods were responsive to and directed by people and the communities of practice we work with and alongside.

3. The working principles and methodological approach described above shaped and enabled the findings and achievements across all of our respective work packages and are described in summary form below:

WP1. The focus of this work package was on the research, training and establishment of the South African Sex Workers Theatre Group (SWTG). The SWTG was developed with, by and for sex workers who are some of the most marginalized and stigmatized people in South Africa. To address this neglect, sex workers have developed their own initiatives, resources and networks to improve their lives and to challenge gendered inequalities and injustices. Working with and alongside of the Sex Workers Education and Advocacy Task force (SWEAT), the establishment of the SWTG is based on holistic engagement with sex workers and extends existing initiatives in order to challenge systems of sexual violence and raise the aspirations and self-confidence of sex workers who undertake sex work in order to sustain themselves and others. Our research disclosed how spaces of labour, the devaluing of women's work, violence against women, the taboos surrounding sex work and the effects of discriminatory laws produce inequality and injustice in sex worker's lives and affect their wellbeing, as well as social and economic opportunities. Arts-based practice and performance not only builds on and enlivens forms of creative political activism that seek to redress and remedy those injustices but also fundamentally responds to and addresses embodied forms of personal trauma and creates new forms of care for self and others. It also calls attention to ethical dilemmas and limitations of interventions that emerge within new and continuing crisis including the necessity of responding sensitively and flexibly to the uncertainties of challenging situations and experiences of COVID in particular.

WP 2. The focus of this work package was on investigating and telling the untold story of female construction workers in Bangladesh through both ethnographic research and participatory photography projects that enabled women to shape and craft their own visual representations and through that develop, for the first time, their own workers' manifesto of rights. Our research disclosed the way that gendered norms and patriarchal codes proscribe women's involvement in masculinised labour. Conventionally when women's work in construction is visible it is often derided as dirty, unskilled and the object of scorn or pity. As our research evidenced, the women who work on these construction sites tend to lack formal education and the more highly valued forms of marketable skills, and as many of them are lone parents or do not have male household members who are able or willing to support them financially, they become construction labourers as a strategic survival strategy to support themselves and their children. These women also challenge normative gender codes in Bangladesh pertaining to women's appropriate roles, employment and public visibility. As Tanzina Choudhury and Suzanne Clisby argued in one academic output arising from the project, '[f]emale construction workers challenge dominant ideas about women's bodily strength and skills: digging foundations, breaking rocks, carrying heavy loads. They are highly visible performers of masculinised labour in the public arena and their bodies blur the borders of normative constructions of appropriate femininity and masculinity. They stand at the front line of patriarchy, 'queering the margins' of male space, and the radical potential of these 'border bodies' must be recognised' (Choudhury and Clisby, 2020, p.168). However, through their construction labour, these women can experience significant health harms, poor mental wellbeing, labour exploitation, gender-based discrimination and sexual abuse. Producing and controlling images of and about themselves enables new modes of self-representation, creates possibilities to imagine alternative futures and assert claims for more equitable working relationships. The manifesto they have built like the photographs they have taken and shared and that now circulate throughout Bangladesh and beyond are not only moments of 'decolonial joy' (Negron Muntaner, 2020) but also material foundations and possible platforms for further change and action.

WP3. This work package investigated the intersectional gender dynamic of peripheral artistic and cultural practices. It demonstrated the importance of different artistic practices and multiple aesthetic languages both for disclosing people's embodied experiences of and confrontation with intersectional gender inequalities and for enabling experiments in reconceptualising gender relations and remaking masculinities in particular. Together, researchers, artists and activists developed reflections about the way young peripheral women and men dispute the hegemonic models of masculinity and the fetishizing looks that are directed to them. On the one hand, the collaborative and interdisciplinary practice made visible the daily dynamics of intersectional hierarchies inscribed in the city of Rio de Janeiro and that structure the precariousness of the city peripheries where the artistic residencies took place. On the other hand, they also challenge the colonial narrative of lack foregrounding multiple knowledges and everyday (re)invention of life, construction of empathy and spaces of peace amidst ongoing forms of racialised violence. As articulated within and through the 'Free school of Art' a hybrid digital residency programme that took place at Galpão Bela Maré in Rio de Janeiro throughout 2020-2021 in response to the demands of the COVID-19 pandemic, art practice became a generator of formative spaces and languages centred on the democratization of knowledge, the reconstruction of collective memory and site of social and political transformation.

WP4. This work package focused on the development and convening of the first national and community-based LGBTQ+ writers' workshops and virtual artistic residency programmes in the Philippines. In doing so the projected developed a platform for enabling and encouraging queer artists and writers amidst a pandemic and within a general situation where queer people's subjectivities and identifications are frequently abjected and elided. On the one hand, the workshops have produced both an archive of new LGBTQ+ art and literature as well as pedagogical resources to support the teaching of queer art and literature in schools and colleges in the Philippines. On the other hand, the artistic and creative artefacts and the embodied, textual and performative knowledge produced within and arising from those workshops disclose multiple stories about contemporary aspirations, imaginings and subjectivities of variously positioned 'queer' Filipinos and about the ongoing decolonial recovery of forms of desire and identification, such as kabaklaan, a contemporary and complex 'sexual' tradition that exceeds, because it also precedes, sexological concepts and the hetoro and homonormativities that the colonial has produced. More broadly, the work, workshops and residency programme challenges both the translatability of queerness and 'the normativity of "queer art" itself.

WP5. This work package focused on collaborative and participatory forms of research and artistic practice, including film, theatre and an itinerant exhibition space, the museum of migration, working with and alongside Indigenous migrant communities in Chiapas State. Their research reveals the persistent discrimination and marginalisation of both indigenous people and migrant workers, as well as appropriation of their cultural inheritance and creative labour: systems and processes that are both shaped by persistent gender and racialized stereotypes and have a considerable gendered impact on the life experiences and experiences of mobility for indigenous women and men. In response they designed and ran residential schools for both young Indigenous women and men which have engaged with Indigenous understandings of gender and made contributions to Gender Equality through equipping these young people with resources to champion gender equality both in their communities and when they migrate to work in other social settings in Mexico and the USA.

WP6. This work package focused on investigating the experience of women and people of colour working in museums of South Africa and the UK. Drawing on extended interviews as well as other forms of collaborative and creative engagement, the research discloses the way that women organise and strategize, how leadership in these institutions are changing, and being challenged with respect to gender and race, and the way that resilience and solidarity is enacted in contradictory situations. On the one hand, women museum workers in both South Africa and the UK in different ways continue to be in, in Puwar's terms, 'space invaders'. On the other hand, women in museums are creating and demonstrating different ways of working that are able to shift and abrogate men's power and challenge the persistent power of whiteness that define the somatic norm. Though broadly emancipatory there remain tensions and contradictions and important differences in the experiences of women in museums in South Africa and the UK including, for example, the ways that women's work was changed and altered in response to Covid 19.
Exploitation Route As described in our pathways to impact statement, and further detailed in our narrative impact statement below, our research outcomes will be taken forward through:

1. Drawing on the examples of good practice for raising awareness among diverse publics about contributions to gender equality and diminished wellbeing we developed through the wide range of community-based art events and exhibitions which our team co-created and delivered. These are a key means of generating social impact, for example: through the Bangladesh team's successful community festival which showcased participants' film and photography; the Brazil team's work with favela-based artists which led to community education interventions alongside exhibitions and dance performances within the favela; the Mexico team's work with the mobile Migrant Museum that works with isolated and marginalised parts of rural society to respond to racialised forms of exclusion and envision more equitable futures for young women and men; and the South African team's literal placement of sex workers centre stage performing dramatic pieces that they themselves wrote, rehearsed, staged and performed, and leading to the impact legacy of the creation of the participant-led Sex Workers' Theatre Group. On a national scale the Philippines team's use of literary artworks produced by young LGBTQ writers in their workshops to produce a Gender and LGBTQ sensitive and inclusive curriculum with recorded webinars offered to teachers across the country has considerable promise as a model in other settings. Globally the GlobalGRACE Online Course, Experiments in Cultures of Equality - https://course.globalgrace.net - distils much of the best practice developed by teams into free and accessible resources and examples of artistic and creative methods developed to support experiments in decolonising gender inequalities. to which anyone with access to the internet can draw upon.

2. Encouraging art practitioners and curators to consider ways that visual and performing arts can promote dialogues about gender equality, wellbeing and development through a series of major public exhibitions, including exhibitions in London in 2018 and 2021, public performances of four original theatrical pieces in South Africa, with one also being available online; two exhibitions and one dance performance in Brazil in 2019, 2020, and 2021 that have led to a series of documentary films; exhibitions of female construction workers' photography in Bangladesh, India and online; a series of films produced by Indigenous communities in Mexico; and two volumes of original fiction and poetry produced by young LGBTQ writers in the Philippines, as well as the digital exhibition 'Entry Level' curated by Patrick Flores and Carlos Quijon Jr arising from the first virtual LGBTQIA+ artistic residency programme in the Philippines. The artistic outputs from across the projects have now been curated into our digital exhibition space, 'Re/Locating Cultures of Equality' - https://exhibition.globalgrace.net/ - that was launched alongside of the online course in February 2022. Together these events and exhibitions continue to create social impact through engaging not only publics but also influential artists, creators, writers and filmmakers beyond the GlobalGRACE Project.

3. Inspiring interdisciplinary and creative approaches to development among postgraduates and ECRs and enhancing the capacity of project partners and community-based organisations through an annual series of partnership and capability events in London, 2018, Rio, 2019, and virtually in 2020 and 2021, due to Covid. These events and the teaching conducted by GlobalGRACE researchers in their own and each other's institutions, participation in international conferences and webinar series, as well as in settings such as the UNESCO-supported Gender Equality Studies & Training Programme in Iceland, has enabled us to carry our findings to wide audiences of civil society practitioners, students and scholars. To this we added in 2022 the GlobalGRACE Online Course and Virtual Exhibition, described above, both of which were designed to be applied in (and beyond) the classroom setting for teaching on gender equality.

Description The GlobalGRACE research programme aimed throughout to generate impacts focused broadly on enhancing quality of life, health and creative output, addressing challenges in terms of Human Rights, Good Governance and Social Justice', especially reducing 'poverty and inequality, including gender inequalities', and contribute to UN SDGs 3 (Wellbeing) and 5 (Gender Equality). The following summarises the key achievements and impacts from each of our 6 Work Packages in terms of the primary beneficiaries we described in our original impact plan: a. People in DAC listed countries who are our participants and co-producers of research. b. Project partners and community-based organisations c. Arts practitioners & museums d. Policy makers and advocacy groups WP1 South Africa: a) We established the first theatre group run by and for sex workers in South Africa, the Sex Workers Theatre Group, South Africa (SWTG). They wrote, staged and performed original theatre productions which directly made a contribution to Gender Equality and SDG5, and enhanced significantly the participants' creative output and provided a platform for women and men undertaking sex work to address gender-based violence and inequalities. Through project partners SWEAT, SWTG is now an ongoing and operational theatre group who have been enabled to bid for and secure support moving ahead. b) We enhanced the interdisciplinary research capacity of project partners UCT & SWEAT through mentoring, mobilities, partnership and training events. Impacts on the wellbeing of the sex worker participants and researchers from UCT and SWEAT have also been realised through art therapy workshops, in line with our aim to impact upon SDG3. This support continued via digital outreach throughout the pandemic. c) Collaborations were formed with theatres in Cape Town which have not only provided space and resources for workshops and rehearsals, but also provided a stage on which the Sex Workers' Theatre Group can perform which is part of existing theatrical circuits with established audiences, thereby increasing the Social Impact of the contributions to Gender Equality and SDG5 made by the group. d) Through production, performance and audience engagement, the Sex Workers' Theatre Group developed its capacity for advocacy and networking for the gendered rights of sex workers. WP2 Bangladesh: a) Training in participatory film making and photography was provided for a group of female construction workers, leading to multiple exhibitions and the development of both a female construction workers rights manifesto and subsequently a women workers' rights manifesto co-created by over 1000 socio-economically marginalised women in Sylhet. Through these Manifestos they raised awareness of the gender discrimination they confront, and made contributions to Gender Equality and SDG5. b) We enhanced the interdisciplinary research capacity of project partners SUST and IDEA especially in undertaking visual and participatory research through mentoring, mobilities, partnership and training events delivered by national and international experts and practitioners. c) We enhanced the creative outputs and curatorial practices of film and photography societies at our partner University, building career development pathways for participants which will bring Economic Impact through the increased professionalisation of the audiovisual sector. d) The women construction workers who participated in the project have formed an advocacy network for women in the construction sector, creating and disseminating a manifesto for change in Bangladesh to promote safer and more equitable working conditions in the construction sector and multiple social media networks focused on economic and livelihood diversification. This thereby contributed to the generation of greater wellbeing (SGD3) and positive Economic Impact within their impoverished communities. e) Following the outbreak of the pandemic and the reduction in employment opportunities for female construction workers, the research team worked with participants to develop new livelihood strategies and establish new social networks and media platforms to mobilise women across class divides. This has resulted in the creation of a new social media-based women's network and social enterprise called Nityo Sokha (Everyday Companion) ????? ??? - Nityo Sokha - Home | Facebook [https://www.facebook.com/nityosokha/?fref=mentions&__xts__[0]=68.ARD0gPb4CKKHJnmc7_xD-qDR1Hr1dnorzL-Ivl8OXN-fLYGze-cmAJrHBMe5UdxVbDadF_FA0IKHARDTDaK6MuWQmAxajHuBtHOCVeHi9eT1u4y0wrW6HWBjoCS7IH_r-MEL9qbNjHJ3luhSGtUpHg2wPV3qATPYX8SnDjARps4FGM3ZREZGItuNkFNGXyJkMev1mZr6yj-a1r0YGLT9X9L3mpiJ0nXoBlthbAJLYx3ViQWGxcehrDHRGMamFyNFhkG_ZCZzYlngMxaWRZECT6xIr3FDYuouytIVKZiLtMaf94stkeU]. The Nityo Sokha enterprise co-created in collaboration with women participants by the WP2 team, and now in 2022 having grown to involve almost 2000 women, are offering several products and services to customers, including an innovative project supporting small enterprises with 'delivery women' - itself a radical departure from normative gender roles in Bangladesh - to deliver their products at the customers' doorsteps. Beyond 2022 Nityo Sokha will continue as a cooperative venture owned and run by women participants bringing together both socio-economically marginalised and less economically vulnerable women in Sylhet, supporting women's small business enterprise and entrepreneurship. WP3 Brazil: a) Through community courses and educational activities linked to exhibitions and performances in the favela community of Maré in Rio de Janeiro (Brazil) participant feedback revealed increased knowledge about and appreciation of the potential for positive masculinities to improve Gender and Racial Equality (SDG5). b) We enhanced the interdisciplinary research capacity of project partners PUC-RIO, Promundo and IMJA through mentoring, mobilities, partnership and training events. In particular, project partners IMJA benefitted from knowledge exchange with Mexican NGO partners Voces Mesoamericanas during reciprocal visits. These exchanges facilitated transfer of knowledge about strategies for generating Social Impact through NGO work in marginalised communities, focused particularly on making contributions to Gender Equality and SDG5. c) Through a series of three artistic residencies running from 2019-2021 we provided the opportunity and resources for artists to contribute to Gender Equality and SDG5, focusing especially on masculinity, art and potential from the peripheries, alongside academic and NGO researchers, impacting positively on their artistic practices and networks, and generating Social Impact through public exhibitions and performances: the insights arising from these residencies and workshops have led to the open access publication in Portuguese, Spanish and English. d) Of particular note is work and support for the dance company Passinho Carioca Company, including facilitation of their application for micro-entrepreneur status as autonomous artists and partnership and capability networks created with other dance companies in Maré, Rio de Janeiro (i.e Mulheres ao Vento) through a peer mentorship approach with Passinho Carioca company e) Alongside the series of artistic residencies the team ran workshops for and with 'multiplicators' who occupy key positions in advocacy networks in Rio's favelas. WP4 Philippines: a) We held two national and two community level writing workshops for LGBTQ people in the Philippines, and following the outbreak of the pandemic a digital artist in residency programme. These enhanced participant well-being (SDG3), affirmed their gender and sexual identities and enriched their creative outputs through the publication of two volumes of their literary work, a digital exhibition and archive, making a significant local, regional and national contribution to Gender Equality and SDG5. b) We enhanced the interdisciplinary research capacity of project partners UP and YMCA, especially in combining literary, artistic and social science research through mentoring, mobilities, partnership and training events. c) We supported the founding of a new YMCA with a special emphasis on promoting LGBTQ rights and contributing to Gender Equality and SDG5 within the wider organisation and society. d) We developed a resource and ran two teacher training webinars focused especially on high school and college educators to combine Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity Expression (SOGIE) awareness training with literature and creative writing. This resource which is available as both open access written material and recorded webinars has already impacted significantly on the 200 participants and has potential for generating significant Social Impact relevant to SDG3 & 5 in the years ahead. WP5 Mexico: a) We trained indigenous young people in audiovisual methods and creative pubic engagement and this has supported skills development as well as improved wellbeing and self-esteem (SDG3). b) We enhanced the interdisciplinary research capacity of project researchers at UNACH and Voces Mesoamericanas through mentoring, mobilities, partnership and training events, and intensive writing retreats which focused on generating SOCIAL IMPACT. c) We identified a need for further research on masculinity and have developed a new curriculum designed for working with indigenous men, making a unique contribution to Gender Equality and SDG5. d) The team, led by Voces Mesoamericanos, participated extensively in networks and partnerships of NGOs focused on indigenous and migrants' rights, and collectively lobbied national and local authorities advocating for these groups. WP6 UK and South Africa: a) We enhanced interdisciplinary research capacity across all project partners, including UK researchers based at Goldsmiths, through mentoring, mobilities, partnership and training focused especially on curation and exhibition making and using creative methods to generate Social Impact and contributions to Gender Equality and SDG5 through public engagement. b) We led development of the Virtual Exhibition and Online Course outputs which focus on Gender Equality and SDG5 from DAC-listed country perspectives. c) Through research and network formation and strengthening activities we have developed linkages between UK and South Africa-based museums and museum professionals, focusing particularly on racial justice and contributions to Gender Equality and SDG5. d) Through the production of podcasts with professional advocacy networks of women and people of colour working in the UK museum sector we have disseminated best practices of contributions to Gender Equality and SDG5 within the sector. GENDER EQUALITY SUMMARY 1) Our research team included women, men, and Transgender and Queer people, the majority being Global South researchers and many of whom are people of colour, with women holding most positions within the Executive Committee, the primary management and governance body of the project. The body of research participants and project collaborators similarly covers the whole range of gendered and sexual identities, mirroring the broad research focus on Gender Equality and SDG5. 2) Each Work Package has a specific demographic focus for their research. We worked to generate impact with and for each of the groups below, understood through an intersectional lens that attends to social differences and divisions of age, class, dis/ability, 'race', ethnicity and religion, as well as gender and sexuality: WP1: Female, Male, Transgender and Queer sex workers; WP2: Female Construction Workers and a wider group of socio-economically marginalised women; WP3: Women and men who explore masculinity and gender equality through artistic practices; WP4: LGBTQIA+ young people WP5: Young Indigenous women and men WP6: Women and People of Colour working in the museums sector in the UK and South Africa. 3) The overarching focus of all project activities was to make contributions to Gender Equality and SDG5 through examining both gender inequality and the ways in which artistic and creative practice have, are, and can promote and generate greater gender equality, and ameliorate the negative impacts on wellbeing that gender inequality causes (SDG3). Given that women and LGBTQ communities are the most negatively impacted by gender inequality it follows that many of our participants were drawn from these groups, and that most impact activities were so directed. However, due to our recognition that gender inequality also impinges upon men, and that considering masculinity is an essential factor in generating gender equality, one of our work packages worked primarily on the generation of positive masculinities (WP3), and the other work packages have remained alert to the need to engage men. This led, for example, to WP5 developing workshops and schools which work with indigenous young men on developing equality positive masculinities, following their early research revealing that such interventions were both necessary and considered desirable by indigenous men. 4) As all researchers and NGOs working on the project have considerable experience in working on gender equality scholarship and advocacy we were attuned from the beginning to the risks of unintended negative consequences. These potential risks have been included in all stages of planning, development, execution and evaluation, and this has enabled us to attend to and seek to redress any potential unintended consequences of GlobalGRACE activities for researchers or participants. It has also enabled as to be proactive in mitigating such risks by, for example: a) Introducing specialised and focused wellbeing workshops and resources for researchers and participants who indicated that the focus on gendered inequality risked prejudicing their wellbeing, for example in Bangladesh and South Africa; b) Adding activities focusing on men and masculinities to the activities of WP5 in Mexico to ensure the inclusion and address the needs and concerns of indigenous men, as explained above.

Description GCRF GlobalGRACE / Governing Intimacies (Mellon Foundation) Collaboration 
Organisation University of the Witwatersrand

Sector Academic/University 
PI Contribution Discussions of ways in which the GCRF GlobalGRACE Project and Mellon Foundation-funded 'Governing Intimacies' Project could collaborate began in June 2018 when the PI of Governing Intimacies, Professor Srila Roy (Sociology Department, University of the Witwatersrand) attended the GlobalGRACE launch event in London as both an 'International Project Evaluator' for the project and discussant at the launch conference. The first concrete intellectual collaboration came later in 2020, when GlobalGRACE Brazil researcher Andréa Gill participated as a speaker in the webinar series developed by "Governing Intimacies", speaking in a session about "Building Epistemic Infrastructures in the Global South", in line with GlobalGRACE's objectives of increasing research capacity in DAC-listed countries through South-South collaboration and knowledge exchanges which are unmediated by former colonial powers. We are considering 2020 to be the year that the intellectual collaboration between the two projects began, whilst recognising that the roots of this collaboration lie further back in time. We are now planning for greater and continued collaborations in 2021.
Collaborator Contribution The Mellon Foundation-funded 'Governing Intimacies' Project is led by Professor Srila Roy (Sociology Department), who has served as one of two 'International Project Evaluators' for the GlobalGRACE Project since 2018. This role is not directly tied to the 'Governing Intimacies' project, but the intellectual collaboration between GlobalGRACE and Governing Intimacies can be traced to the conversations, debates, and critical engagements engendered by her work as an evaluator.
Impact The first output is the aforementioned participation of GlobalGRACE Brazil researcher Andréa Gill as a speaker in the webinar series developed by "Governing Intimacies", speaking in a session about "Building Epistemic Infrastructures in the Global South". This was multidisciplinary, spanning Gender Studies, Sociology, History, and International Relations, thus impacting on the often overly disciplinary culture of the Academy.

Primary Audience Public/other audiences
Results and Impact The GlobalGRACE Bangladesh team has created a social media platform for women from all walks of life. The platform is a women-only Facebook group named 'Protity - Women in Creation, Joy, and Feeling'. The members can share their written stories, poems, essays, their cooking recipes, and all the stories of their everyday life here. The women entrepreneurs can promote their enterprises in the group. The idea of this group is to become a safe place for all the women to talk about things they may have wanted to share with their friends, but could not always do, as they thought people might not be interested in their stories. This group tries to debunk the myth that their voices are not valuable or valued. The main purpose of this group is to promote women's wellbeing and to provide a space where women can stand by each other in creation, in joy, in feeling, to share each other's joys and sorrows.
The women entrepreneurs who run small enterprises want to support more marginalized and resource-poor women by recruiting them to work within their businesses. The intent of the GlobalGRACE Bangladesh team in creating the platform is to promote the women entrepreneurs who run small businesses (e.g. home chefs/gardeners) so that, as their businesses grow, they could support more women by recruiting and training them in greater numbers. Another goal is to familiarize the concept of 'delivery women' in society through women entrepreneurs. Women who are in the catering business, clothes business, in gardening, and working with other food and household items could employ women as delivery people which could create a new niche for marginalized women to sell their labour power.
As of October 2021 there are more than 1300 women members in the group, and the number is increasing day by day. The members are posting about various issues, for example: writing short stories and poems, writing book reviews, promoting their businesses, sharing various food recipes, making fun posts, writing about their everyday experiences etc. The group has become a lively and vibrant platform within a very short period of time.

Results and Impact On Friday 29th June 2018 the GlobalGRACE project hosted its first public event at Goldsmiths, University of London. The all day event consisted of a series of roundtable sessions at which the different research work packages of the project introduced their projects to an international audience of scholars, NGO representatives, members of the artist and creative industries and other members of civil society. Each roundtable was chaired by an independent gender specialist discussant, and the day finished with a panel comprised of internationally renowned gender studies professors from the USA (Professors Susan Stanford Friedman and Frances Negron Muntaner from the University of Wisconsin and Columbia University respectively), Africa (Professor Srila Roy from the University of Witwatersrand, South Africa), and Europe (Professor Rosemarie Buikema from Utrecht University, the Netherlands). These experts provided a detailed analysis of the plans for the project, and many pieces of advice for how it might proceed.
The main impacts of this event were fourfold:
1. Substantial benefits accrued to the GlobalGRACE network itself, through the feedback, both formal and informal, provided by the audiences to the roundtable sessions. During the stage of the project when concrete and practical plans for the empirical research ahead were being developed this feedback from scholars, NGO professionals, the artistic and creative community, and the general public were highly useful, and have had a considerably positive impact on the ongoing research design process.
2. Capacities and capabilities of all participants were enhanced through participation in the roundtables and attendant discussions and networking. This is particularly so for the ECRs, who as would be expected are less experienced than their more senior colleagues in both public speaking and engaging with a varied audience that stretched beyond the academic sector that they are most familiar with.
3. Awareness of the project was raised, most importantly beyond Goldsmiths, across the wide range of attendees. The impact of this is somewhat intangible at this stage, but members of the project networked extensively with professionals across the range of sectors highlighted above. This opened the door to potential future impacts in the form of collaborations with individuals and organisations, and we hope in future reporting periods to be able to concretise these discussions in the form of partnerships, collaborations, and other impactful activities.
4. Awareness was also raised more generally of the substantive and theoretical themes with which the project engages. These most prominently include, but are not limited to, gender equality; gendered impacts on wellbeing and livelihoods; the intersections of art, scholarship and decoloniality in development; and the importance of the concept of curation, which crosscuts these themes.

Results and Impact The GlobalGRACE Sex Worker Theatre Group was entered and selected to participate in the HIV2020 conference, which was initially scheduled to take place in June 2020 in Mexico City - Mexico. Due to Covid it was moved online and the Sex Worker Theatre Group staged a virtual exhibition of the filmed version of their performance 'Yeki Hambe: let it go', alongside a photographic exhibition which was live on the HIV2020 website from June 2020 to October 2020. On the 2nd of August 2020 they also 'took over' the HIV2020 instagram account to publicise the exhibition.
The organisers of HIV2020 have reported that HIV2020 Online had a total of 7,397 participants from 131 countries who joined together for over 33 sessions to listen, participate, view, and interact with one another. All sessions were offered with simultaneous translation in five languages, which are now available online as video and audio recordings. This means that the reach of the GlobalGRACE Sex Worker Theatre Group was huge, and covered most DAC-listed countries across the world. The exposure of the project and its research was therefore very significant, and included a very wide range of people across the NGO, policy, education and general public sectors.

Primary Audience Professional Practitioners
Results and Impact From 23-27 July 2018, the first GlobalGRACE- University of the Philippines National LGBTQ Writers Workshop was held in Manila. Ten young LGBTQ poets writing in Filipino and other regional languages, as well as English were selected as fellows from an open national competition, and they then benefitted from the mentorship of a panel of nationally recognised poets and scholars. Significantly, a number of the fellows were from outside the capital region including southern Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao. Here very clearly the varying impacts of inequality on mental and physical wellbeing were expressed through the poetry developed through the workshop. The workshop fellows have been invited to submit their revised poems to be published by UP press. This will be the first of a series of planned volumes arising from the annual series of writing workshops, with a further anthology planned as a learning and teaching resource for high school teachers. These resources will also contribute to the GlobalGRACE 'museum of global equalities' and online course. Moreover, in addition to the national benefits accruing from these eventual outputs, selected fellows and panellists will attend and act as mentors at the first community-based workshop which will be held later this year in the city of San Pablo, organised and hosted by project partners the YMCA San Pablo. This artistic exploration of the gender/wellbeing intersection will be an invaluable resource both in that country and for the project as a whole as all WPs develop and research this intersection through a variety of multisensory methods and artistic expressions.

2021 Update - The above-mentioned volume was published in 2020 under the title 'Busilak: New LGBTQ Poetry from the Philippines' - see publications section of this site for more details.

This state attracts the largest number of migrant workers from other parts of Mexico, but these workers are often forgotten due to the focus on those migrants who cross the border into the USA.
The main objective during the event was to disseminate MuMi and the project and engage the day laborers in discussions of their rights and to seek answers to the problems they faced by the thousands of agricultural workers in Sonora. The main objective for future engagements is to open spaces for dialogue between day laborers and stakeholders to develop proposals that provide alternative solutions to the different problems and contribute to the visibility of this social group.
