Creative machines are playing an increasingly important role in the art world and society at large. This gives rise to the need to consider the ethical dimensions of artistic machine agents. Whose art are we amplifying, or more importantly, who is being left behind? Computational Creativity offers the opportunity to bring awareness and visibility to art forms that have been systemically suppressed due to a range of longstanding societal biases. In this paper, we introduce EMBRIDE, a system that creates Madhubani art, practiced by women in the villages of India and Nepal. We hope that this work will encourage further exploration into computational systems that amplify lesser-known art forms.
