The purple meridians

June 2022

The Purple Meridians are geographic as well as symbolic coordinates, and also the name of a joint project created in 2021 by three organisations based in three European cities: Observatori de Vídeo No Identificat (Barcelona) Streeen.org (Turin) and Rosa Kadın Derneği (Diyarbakır).

Three organisations in cities and countries that are far away from each other, but share the desire for a fairer distribution of opportunities for women and non-binary people in the audiovisual and film industry.

Over the past year, three workshops were held in which 18 film and video makers discussed and shared their experiences and knowledge. The workshops gave rise to several proposals, including the desire to continue to cultivate these connections, and to organise a face-to-face meeting in which to further develop individual needs and strengthen personal and professional links.

In 2022, we will organize a thematic residence to keep working on the proposals that emerged in the 2021 workshops: an international meeting of 10 filmmakers from different countries, to break the boundaries they have faced and contribute proposals for moving forward. The idea is to create a network for mutual support and exchange for future collaborations, along an axis that crosses the whole of Europe, from its eastern to its western border.
