Expression Of You – Activating the Rainbow


Expression Of You is a 30-year living art project that provides individuals with the opportunity to release the stigma, societal labels, and stereotypes by sharing ‘Their Truth’ in the way they want to be seen.

Now in its eight year, the self-funded project features the personal stories and journeys of over 350 women, femme- identifying and non-binary individuals, age 9 to 85, from around the world. Their Truth is captured in photographic portraits, documentary videos, and first-person writing.

Ashley Karrell had two exhibitions in 2013 and is working towards his next run of sharing starting in September 2019. Over the next 22 years, he aims to continue this journey, on a quest to find, explore and share the stories of 10,000 women, femme-identifying and non-binary people and 5,000 men and male identifying individuals from all walks of life.

Activating the Rainbow is about making Expression of You sustainable in celebrating the diversity, similarities, power, and subtleties of what it means to be a human. The participation in the project is free.

Become a patron and help enable to give voice to the real humans within us.
