ARORA (formerly the #MakeUsVisible campaign) is a network of digital monuments for a more inclusive world. It was co-founded by Anne Wichmann, Clara Francesca, Katie Peyton Hofstadter and Nam Le. 


Currently we showcase exhibitions in the US and in Europe.

Our Story

After talking to a friend about the fact that 91% of the sculptures in NYC depict men, Anne Wichmann had the initial idea for the event #MakeUsVisible in November 2021.
She told Clara Francesca about it and they immediately decided to realize the project with XRE.
Through the artist Erin Ko they met Nam Le from Pollinate and the curator and writer Katie Peyton Hofstadter: The co-founding team started working in December 2021, and the first showcase of #MakeUsVisible kicked off on March 1, 2022 in New York City.
