Blank Noise is built on the strength and efforts of its growing community of Action Heroes. An Action Hero is anyone who steps in to their power and potential to build a safe space. Over the past decade, we have mobilised a growing community of Action Heroes from across 66 Indian cities and towns, and globally, to take agency in tackling the issue. Action Heroes fight fear, say no to victim blame, and build efforts to co create safe spaces through community building.
Our project ideas have rippled into more than 300 actions, taking shape across spaces from the streets, public parks, public transport, the internet, classrooms, college campuses, art spaces, mainstream media, conference rooms, and collective public memory. We believe in imagining the world, and society we want, and then stepping into our Action Hero potential, to create it. Thank you for believing in our vision. Thank you for enabling our work, through your generous donation.
