FEMeeting is a gathering and an exchange of Women in Art, Science and Technology
Following the first FEMeeting 2018 – Women in Art, Science and Technology, which took place June 15-19th, in Portugal in the locations of Lisbon, Evora and Sao Luis – Odemira, the organizers have the pleasure to announce FEMeeting 2019. The second FEMeeting – Women in Art, Science and Technology, also takes place in Portugal and its activities spread over three different locations, Vila Nova de Milfontes, Lisbon and Oporto, and is scheduled from May 30th until June 5th 2019.
FEMeeting’s aim is to bring together women from all over the world to share and disseminate their projects in arts, science and technology research. As a result many participants expressed interest to continue the meetings with FEMeeting 2019 in order to strengthen the network, contribute to the development of art-science research methodologies and grow cooperation strategies increasing knowledge sharing and bringing communities closer. In Art, Science & Technology women are a visible presence in international festivals and conferences, either working as faculty, curators, artists, scientists or having an interweaved role. The balanced numbers between genders is an undeniable phenomenon and consequently this is an interesting time to reflect on the status quo of contemporary science and art.
FEMeeting 2019 continues to emphasize that contributions to the conference are welcome from individuals who identify themselves as women, independently of their sex. The concept of woman might be considered as a challenging one as it is nonconsensual in its multiplicity of roles and arousing cultural imaging. FEMeeting is a space for the co-habitation of individuality and uniqueness. The organizers of the conference wish to provide the opportunity for the gathering and presentation of artwork and research experiences in the unspoiled environment of southwest Portugal, followed by the two days of events open to the public in Lisbon and Oporto.
