Europe is female !

Together for Gender Equality
junge Frauen 1

Women are still underrepresented on many levels today. Whether in politics, science or in leadership positions in business - there is still a lot to do in Germany and Europe to create real equality. In addition, women and their achievements are often less visible and so many challenges and inequalities remain hidden. This is exactly where we come in with Europe is Female. Through art workshops and seminars, young women from Europe create their own artworks that focus on the issues of equality and participation.

About the project

The project Europe is Female is aimed at young women* from Germany, Portugal, Croatia and Lithuania. In three weeks of workshops, they create their own artworks on the themes of equality, participation and female role models. In each workshop they will be introduced to a different art form by local female artists, which they will then explore in the following days and contribute their own ideas and thoughts. In addition to the art workshops, the participants spend cultural evenings together, discover the cities where we come together and exchange views in the diverse group.

What is the aim?

The participants actively participate in the project and decide on the main themes themselves. They create their own artworks and engage closely with the issue of gender equality. This encourages them to create space and a voice for themselves and to make an active - and visible - contribution to society.

Building blocks

The project consists of five building blocks:

  • a digital kick-off meeting at the beginning of September
  • three art workshops in Portugal, Croatia and Lithuania
  • a final exibition in Berlin, Germany (9 - 11 December 2023)

The art workshops will take place on the following dates:

  • 25 to 27 September 2023 in Esmoriz, Portugal
  • October 26-28, 2023 in Dubrovnik, Croatia
  • 20 to 22 November 2023 in Kaunas, Lithuania

The co-creation seminars bring together a total of 20 participants from the four different countries. There, the participants first learn more about gender (in)equality, visibility and representation. They look at historical perspectives to get a better understanding of the issues at hand and the general challenges that need to be overcome to create a more equal and just world.

Knowing this, they then receive introductions to diverse art forms - directly by local female artists. They develop their own art projects and reflect on what they have heard and experienced before. Each seminar focuses on a different art form. Participants can work on projects individually or get together in small groups. The decision is entirely up to the participants! The results of the workshops, i.e. the many works of art, will be shown and celebrated at an exhibition in Berlin in December 2023.
