A KITCHEN OF HER OWN (AKOHO)
What is A KITCHEN OF HER OWN (AKOHO)?
A Kitchen of Her Own (AKOHO) Social Art Project, Experimental Art Space and Community Kitchen in Sebastian, Florida was founded in 2017 by Artist Shari Pierce.
"A KITCHEN OF HER OWN is a consequence in response to violence against women and girls.
A KITCHEN OF HER OWN is responding to the need to create an open space for women and girls who suffer from domestic violence, sexual abuse and rape, or experience violence and devaluation based on their gender.
A KITCHEN OF HER OWN is an applied, visionary art project devoted to all those who have experienced violence and to create change: here, now, in this space in the hope that it has a ripple effect throughout the world in this age of paradigm shifts.
A Kitchen of Her Own is the reality of art and its ability to create empowerment."
