FEMINISMS

Feminisms

If there is some topic that deserves our attention, this is doubtlessly the effective equality of rights between men and women. That is why we call on professionals, researchers, artists who bear in mind the gender inequality on their work, eco-feminism, representation of women in the media, the history of women, cultural criticism and other areas related to this field.

Who can come? Faber is an interdisciplinary residency. Any professional, researcher, artist or writer who has a project related to religion and believe that can participate in activities. These activities (conferences, round tables, seminars, working groups) may be addressed to specialists, but also the general public and students of colleges and schools.

To assess the projects it will be taken into account the candidate’s curriculum, the project work, the quality of the proposed activities and flexibility to adapt to different audiences.
