City of Women: Else Christensen-Redzepovic – Workshop
Gender Equality in Culture
The event will not take place live. We invite you to follow live stream on the website: 2020.cityofwomen.org.
With the workshop, we endeavour to move gender equality debates from theory, policy, and good intentions to concrete action points: project ideas and discussions on how different non-governmental organisations, networks and institutions could commit to implementing specific actions. We will discuss three areas of gender equality:
What are the main gender gaps and the main drivers for the gaps in the cultural and creative sectors?
How to ensure that female professionals are given the same opportunities as their male colleagues in the cultural and creative sectors?
What measures, if any, are required to promote women’s rights and freedoms to participate in the cultural activities of their choice?
Each topic will be introduced briefly by Else Christensen-Redzepovic, upon which the participants will break into three online subgroups to discuss the topic of choice. Each group will have a moderator and a rapporteur. The outputs from the discussions will be presented at the end of the workshop session.
The workshop can be attended at the Old Power Station or by joining the Zoom conference. Obligatory applications (until all open spots are filled): firstname.lastname@example.org.
