Mediart International is looking for partners to cooperate in the project (e. g. “Women literature in the Spotlight”) that would create engaged audience in the field of empowering female writers. They are equally willing to be a partner on somebody else’s project as they are willing to be the lead partner ourselves.
Organization: Mediart International
Mediart International Association is actively involved in the realm of culture, art and international cooperation. The Association has been founded to primarily promote books, authors, literature and reading, as well as music, multimedia creativity and similar cultural segments. Thus far, Mediart International has successfully organized several international literary events; three editions of Zagreb Book Festival and five editions of Europea in the Backyard.
Project: Women literature in the Spotlight
Despite all of the efforts carried out by the European Union to promote gender equality in different realms of life, we are still witnessing unequal conditions for men and women around Europe. Inequality is evident in the gender pay gap, job descriptions for female and male workers that is almost exclusively favouring men over women, and work conditions that they encounter (maternity leave etc.). The gender inequality is also evident in the field that is considered to be more progressive and liberal; creativity and art. If one glances over the titles of recently published books and its authors as well as the nominees of literary awards, male dominance cannot be overlooked. Alongside with the aforementioned facts, with everything that has been going on in the world we can see that the gender equality has not been definitely achieved, but rather has to be reclaimed by each following generation as one of the main pillars of the European Union and its values.
The overall objective of our project is to put the spotlight on women authors and their creativity, as well as their specific experiences in the field of European literature in order to expand the cleavage of equality and to empower women in art and literature.
We would like to find partners that share that desire in order to cooperate on the project that would create engaged audience in the field of empowering female writers. We are equally willing to be a partner on somebody else’s project as we are willing to be the lead partner ourselves.
