Let’s act now: on gender as a political issue

.

Share

In the world of today, leaders pose as overt sexists and homophobes, and the voices of those demonstrating on behalf of women and LGBTI people go unheard. The time has come for radical change. What can artists do to contribute to the call for action? What real-life measures can we filter into the kinds of art we promote, the way in which we operate in our organisations, and our methods of communication and engagement?
If you have a burning issue relating to gender that you would like to be discussed, bring it with you. We count on your active participation in and after the session.
