Posted by Nicole Moran on October 29, 2020 at 12:27 pm


Share-Net International (SNI) is the knowledge platform on Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights (SRHR). SNI is a membership network of non-governmental organisations, researchers, policy makers, implementers, advocates, students, the media and companies operating in the SRHR field, working closely with a wide range of partners across the globe. Share-Net International aims to strengthen linkages between research, policy and practice through sharing, generating, translating and promoting the use of knowledge for the development of better policies and practices in SRHR.

The outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in serious impacts on the Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights of populations around the globe while simultaneously exacerbating gender inequities in societies. In order to help spotlight the extent of this and to support the art community, Share-Net International aims to launch a digital archive of creative materials which highlights the effects and impact that COVID-19 has had on Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights since its outbreak while also providing a space for those whose experiences and voices have been silenced in the response. Furthermore, the materials will then be available on our website for the use of our members.


•We are looking for a variety of different works which share lived experiences of the effects of COVID-19 on Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights.
•We accept all kinds of creative forms (original writings, paintings, poems, graphics or short movies for example)
•We highly encourage submissions from: sex workers, people with disabilities, LGBTQIA+community, indigenous communities, people of colour and young people.
•Permission from the artist to allow Share-Net members to use the artworks and creativematerials for advocacy purposes
