Venus Edition - Choose To Challenge
Welcome to the Venus takeover of BRIT Now
In this edition, we continue the International Women's Day theme: #ChooseToChallenge
The BRIT School is committed to calling out gender bias and inequality wherever we see it. We continue to celebrate women's achievements. Whilst there is much to celebrate, we know there is still so much that needs to change. Our brave and unstoppable students have created work in response to the challenge.
Collectively, we can all help create an inclusive world.
From challenge comes change, so let's all choose to challenge.

A Tribute to Sister Anne Rose Nu Twang - Lorenzo Zilli
"I wanted to pay a tribute to Sister Anne Rose Nu Twang, a woman that had the courage and the power to stop the police shooting Myanmar`s protesters and asked them to shoot her instead, kneeling on the ground and praying. The gesture was so strong that the policemen stopped shooting and 2 of them actually kneeled next to her and started praying as well. I think this world needs more people like Sister Anne Rose and everyone needs to learn from this gesture that this world needs more humanity, respect for human rights, democracy and freedom."
