This confidence exhibit takes place in a women’s bathroom, a place where self-esteem is often questioned and challenged. The exhibition educates people that low self-esteem in women starts at a young age and aims to change the perception of beauty through an empowering experience. A visitor is guided through graffiti mimicking statistics regarding self confidence, then are invited to take a photo in the photo booth, write and receive a compliment, and read inspirational stories. This is an exhibit for all women to find the confidence within.
