Women Working in Culture Network
From facing initial resistance to launching a new reality, women working in arts and culture have had a profound impact on cultural institutions and their working environment over the years. Not only have female cultural practitioners contributed to the transformation of societies, but also the growing number of women in leading positions.
“Women have become more and more evident in leadership roles within cultural organisations. And I think that has had a slow, but very profound effect on the values we work with and the systems and structures we work within,” says Frances Morris, director of the Tate Modern.
In order to share and discuss innovative aspects of female leadership and empowerment, an international group of female leaders regularly comes together for the Women Working in Culture Network. The network was initiated by the Goethe-Institut in Europe.
HOW ARE WOMEN CHANGING THE CULTURAL WORLD?
During the first Women Working in Culture Network meeting on 29 – 30 November 2019, we asked five participants to share their thoughts with us. How are women changing the art and cultural scene worldwide? Are women better visionaries for the future of our cities? And are female directors changing the world?
