Live Unchained, an international arts media and events organization, has featured over 100 women artists from over 16 countries on their growing online magazine at www.liveunchained.com. The organization is now partnering with Warsan Shire to host an awards ceremony titled “Terrifying, Strange and Beautiful”, to honor Live Unchained featured artists. The event is named after a line from Shire’s poem, “For Women Who Are Difficult to Love” to acknowledge the layers and complexity of women individually and as part of an international community.
