At Open Clasp, we advocate for social, political and cultural change using theatre to raise the often-ignored voices of those who identify as women and young women. As we continue to adapt and overcome difficulties in a global pandemic, we have the opportunity right now to fight for a new world, to end violence, oppression and discrimination against women and girls.

This new film will inspire you to use the arts as your rallying cry and to #ChooseToChallenge.

We are encouraging young women locally and globally, to artistically #ChooseToChallenge. Whether it is designing a campaign website, writing a poem, painting or photographing inspiring women making change in your local area, we want you to creatively use your voice! Use the hashtag #ChooseToChallenge and tag @OpenClasp on Twitter and Instagram or @openclasptheatreco on TikTok and share your response.
