The Fearless Collective represents a group of “visual artists, filmmakers, street artists, photographers and activists that harness the power of art to create social change, with a focus on issues related to gender and sexuality.”
It started off as an online movement and progressed into outdoor exhibitions and international street campaigns.
The collective’s founder, Shilo Shiv Suleman, is an Indian designer who gave a Ted Talk on how technology can enable dreaming.
Suleman has since been involved in several community initiatives, including projects in Pakistan with Pakistani women’s rights activist Nida Mushtaq.
The two women worked with Wajood, a trans rights organization, and painted the wall of a bank when they lost a proposed site.

The Fearless Collective will be expanding into Lebanon, Syria, and Sri Lanka.
