Day of the Girl2022 is a collective impact initiative founded by a small group of people in Cincinnati, Ohio, USA to amplify girls’ voices as leaders and innovators of positive change. By creating shared moments of inspiration and impact, Day of the Girl commemorates International Day of the Girl Child – an international day of observance declared by the United Nations in 2012 and now observed annually on October 11th.
The theme of our Day of the Girl 2022 content is “I am more than..” Through this theme, they are exploring what strengthens us, emboldens us, and inspires us. One of the ways they’re illustrating this theme is through original artwork submitted by young artists from around the world. For the next two weeks, they’ll be showcasing their art on the Day of the Girl social media channels so please check it out!
Featured as the first artwork in observation of International Day of the Girl, is OHHS Art and Design student Anna Ackman! Be on the lookout for more young women artists from OHHS expressing their voices over the course of the next few weeks.
