Description

A Woman’s Work (2018 - 2020) uses photography and digital media to challenge the dominant view of gender and work in Europe. The project will explore the shifting relationship between home and the workplace through artistic collaboration and exchange across borders as well as the co-production of exhibitions, publications and online resources.  A Woman's Work will explore sectors such as the finance industry, media and telecommunications where women’s work is being re-defined through technological developments and post-globalism.

The cultural partners in the United Kingdom, Lithuania, Ireland, France, Finland and Germany will work together to: 

  • Enable artists and cultural professionals from across Europe to cooperate in the making new work about the changing face of women and work in Europe  using both physical and online platforms
  • Create new opportunities for artistic exchange within Europe, increasing the mobility of artists and cultural professionals by utilising collective networks to extend audience reach and the impact
  • Use the European Prospects digital platform to present the project to a global audience, in order to stimulate discussion which challenges the dominant view of gender and industry in Europe, and to encourage and support further transnational co-operation beyond the life of the project. 

During 2019/2020 a series of artist and curator commissions and residencies will be hosted by the partners. The first A Woman’s Work symposium was held in Cardiff in April 2019.
