Why a training about feminism?

Gender equality and feminism have a universally recognized benefit for people. However, our visual references (media, advertisements, movies, ...) are still full of sexist stereotypes and vividly illustrate the depth of stereotypes permeating our contemporary civilization. Yet everyone have much to gain equality of all people, genders and sexes. This project offers professionals and young artists from different European contexts, a privileged opportunity to unite, in Spain, your perception and your actions supporting the mobilization in favor of gender equality.

However, all of them should have: a clear interest in the project, the desire to develop their own personal and professional knowledge, attitudes and skills on this subject and the desire to exchange, interact and work with professionals from different disciplines.

WHERE? WHEN?
