Feminism and Pop Culture: Open Call for Networking Travel to Berlin: Call for Applications
Deadline: 31 May 2018
From the open call:
Feminism, while constituted by many different approaches and perspectives, is an important global movement with its own history and evolution in different parts of the world. The struggle of women has gained extensive (media) attention in many countries in 2017 in the wake of the #metoo movement. In Southeast Asia, Australia and New Zealand as well as Germany, the contexts of feminism and the situations of feminist individuals and institutions in terms of in terms of organizational structure, visibility, networks and challenges could hardly be more diverse. Yet, in all countries, individuals and institutions with feminist perspectives empower women, make their voices heard, and strive towards societies where all people have equal opportunities to create, be heard and be safe.
The networking travel, hosted by Goethe-Institut in cooperation with Missy Magazine, focuses on intersectional feminist perspectives of women working in arts and culture, particularly in relation to pop culture.
It aims at bringing together artists and activists from Southeast Asia, Australia, New Zealand and Germany to share ideas and practices, engage in a dialogue and discuss strategies to connect feminist viewpoints with popular culture (in their respective country) to create spaces for female voices and expand their audience.
We offer a 10-day trip on the topic “Feminism and Pop Culture” to Berlin, Germany including visiting the 2018 edition of the festival Pop-Kultur (http://www.pop-kultur.berlin/en/) as well as various cultural events (exhibitions, performances, concerts).
