Radhika Hettiarachchi and Shanika Perera have collaborated on a joint project entitled “HERSTORIES” for the exhibition.

Radhika Hettiarachchi obtained a BA (Hons) in Communications and English at York University, Canada and her MS in Development at the London School of Economics and Political Science. She has been involved in the development sector, conflict transformation and alternative methods of peacebuilding in Sri Lanka since 2005. She is the curator of Colomboscope 2014, which shares the CAB theme of “Making History”. She is the curator and creator of the “Herstory Archives” project (herstoryarchive.org).

Shanika Perera holds a degree in graphic design from the Academy of Design in Colombo. Beyond her enthusiastic fondness for cows, cats and chopsticks, she shares a deep passion for the environment. A self-styled environmentalist, her ambition and dream is to one day champion positive change in cultivating a more “green-conscious” society. Till then, she remains a professional graphic designer with a multitude of creative accomplishments ranging from fashion and art to advertising.
