Herstory Woven is an interactive artwork commissioned by KWISA- African Women in Scotland Association and produced by artist Fadzai “Fudge” Mwakutuya - to commemorate Women of African Descent who have fought for equality and women’s rights throughout recent history, for Black History Month 2018.
The piece aims to start a conversation about racial equality within the Women’s Rights Movement and highlight the lack of inclusion and representation of women of African descent in societal movements. The aim of the artwork is to emphasise that the Women’s Rights Movements must include all women regardless of race.

This piece is interactive. The idea of interactive art is fast-growing; people like to engage with artwork. In using weaving, which is a basic form of creating: looping in and looping out, making a quality pattern is an easy enough process for people to do without much instruction.
We invite you to take a piece of African fabric use that to add to this section of the artwork, therefore making the struggle of the African woman in Scotland supported. It also shows that we are united in our struggles regardless of race
