What is the ARTchive?

The outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in serious impacts on the Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights (SRHR) of populations around the globe while simultaneously exacerbating gender inequities in societies. To respond to the current crisis, Share-Net International (SNI) has organised several activities to engage in collaboration to better understand, highlight the negative impact of COVID-19 on different SRHR areas, and find ways to reduce the negative impact.  


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 SRHR since its outbreak while also providing a space for those whose experiences and voices have been silenced in the response and supporting the art community.  


All the work portrayed in the ARTchive, share real, lived experiences of the effects of COVID-19 on Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights.  All the materials shared in the ARTchive are available for all Share-Net members

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.
