In line with the philosophy of largescale cooperation, our project will last for 48 months (until August 2021). For the duration of the project the partners will collaborate in a wide range of complementary and, in most cases, cross-cultural activities and actions (Working Packages):
A. Wom@rts Knowledge, Public Awareness, Charter & Promotion
First we have to produce a cross-sectorial diagnosis and research work, to present a full picture of the situation. We will also nominate Ambassadors for the project- recognized European artists, women as well as men, carry out Masterclasses (workshops and conferences), create a European-wide data platform and finally, produce a Charter stating objectives and recommendations of good practices and behaviours in terms of gender egalitarianism in culture and the arts.
B.The 2nd Sex – Creation of a cross-sectorial roaming exhibition to present the works produced in the 3 artistic residencies from 2019 onwards. There, all disciplines will dialogue and form a unique output, as well as paying tribute to Simone de Beauvoir.
C. Capacity Building: to avoid the “starving artist” stereotype through training courses on self-employment and challenges of creating micro-companies as well as internationalization and self-marketing.
D. Participation of women in Festivals and Special Events- European intellectuals, writers and artists in Hay Festivals in Europe and Latin America, Cantactrices! series of concerts and meetings, and the first European Young Female Writers Meeting at the Hay Festival in Rijeka in 2020.
E. Communication aimed at attracting the attention of both the general and the specialized audience and media.
F. Management & Evaluation by a Steering Committee and internal monitoring processes.
