For her project Extra Time Princess Pea developed a series of interventions using football as a means to address gender based inequalities and lack of opportunities for young girls in schools.  She held workshops, football training sessions and health classes in public schools as conversation starters with parents of young girls to shift perceptions about gender roles. The artistic project worked towards the making of a ‘kit’ that resonates with sport but also ideas of survival. For this Princess Pea worked with the girls to develop “contents” of the kit that would include exercises, identity based workshops thinking through clothing and gear. Princess Pea engaged in conversations with the participating girls and their parents regarding access, identity and infrastructure using the idea of Princess Pea and the bulbous head to think through social stigma and body issues.
