Context/Overview

Although the cultural and creative industries represent nearly 8% of Mexico’s GDP, female participation in the industry remains low. 

#BeYourVoice is an inter-disciplinary project developed by Artes Escenicas Teatro de Aire AC, a performing arts company working in education and culture. #BeYourVoice is a unique platform for virtual reality technologies, empowering young Mexican women to use virtual digital technologies.

 

Results

The project will provide 100 young Mexican women with artistic, digital and entrepreneurship skills, using a new virtual reality e-learning tool. The young women, from five different regions, will also benefit from a mentorship program with key female artists.
