Bullets to Butterflies: An Initiative towards Education for All

“This art exhibit is the artistic expression of three Canadian artists in response to the life struggles of Malala Yousufzai.  Malala is a 14 year old school girl who has changed the world with her courageous efforts in encouraging education for girls in Pakistan.  Her voice has represented many girls who cannot speak for themselves as they faced the rules and edicts of the Taliban in Northern Pakistan.

Her efforts have afforded her positive international attention, and have also elicited negative responses from those who oppose her message of equal opportunities for education for girls.  On October 9th, Malala Yousufzai was shot in the head in a targeted attack by the Taliban on her school bus.  Since this date, Malala’s message has reached a worldwide audience.  The shooting and her message has inspired the world to act, and spread the message of Malala – to make education accessible to all children, regardless of gender.”
