The Red Cloud Project launch, breaking the stigma around periods through art and design
In collaboration with Ricebox Studio
Launching the digital campaign on breaking period stigma
Join us for the official launch of the Red Cloud Project: a campaign exploring how to break the stigma around menstruation through art and design, developed by a collective of four young women during the first year of the Rights Studio Fellowship.
Alongside producing the period education book “From Your Big Sisters,” collecting crowdsourced stories from across the globe, building an interactive printing machine and launching a social media campaign using augmented reality filters, they also launched their own design practice - Ricebox Studio.
Join them as they present the project in its entirety and discuss insights gained on the journey to tackling period stigma.
You can watch a video below of the #MenstruationConversation campaign - Ricebox Studio's invitation to talk about periods openly on social media, using their augmented reality Instagram filters.
You can watch a recording of the full panel discussion below.

Please note that we’re using Central European Time (CET) for all events during the festival. We recommend that you check the event times listed with your local time, to ensure you can join us at the right time.
We want to make events throughout the Rights Studio Festival available to as many people as possible. Therefore, many of our events – like this one – are free. We also offer a “Pay What You Can” option, so you can choose to give a little more, if that is within your means. Thank you.
We are inviting our readers to practise their own ways of seeing and sharing some results of this through photos and drawings; this could be anything, from the mundane to the magnificent. These will be transformed into a collective work on perspectives and presented during the forthcoming festival taking place in.
If you too are seeking different questions, whether about how to act in the face of climate collapse, or how we may change our approach to work, please get in touch as we’d like to organise a series of intimate conversations, where answers and solutions are not welcome.
We often use words and pictures to describe our world and our experiences in it. But sounds can affect us profoundly, they can express things that we find hard to put on paper or into words.
