Launched in 2017, the conference “FEMeeting: Women in Art, Science and Technology” was driven by the desire to develop and promote more direct collaboration between individuals who identify as Women. The idea behind FEMeeting was orchestrated by the Portuguese artist Marta de Menezes and scholar Dalila Honorato, after realizing that women in the field of Art and Science have an unquestionable presence worldwide. FEMeeting acknowledges the social relevance of a core community and its role for the future. FEMeeting’s main purpose is to disseminate projects that are being carried out by women in its broadest interpretation (individuals who identify themselves as women, cis-gender and non-cis-gender, gender-fluid and independent of their sex and gender) in order to contribute (a) to the development of research methodologies in art and science and (b) to the development of collaboration strategies that can increase knowledge sharing and bring communities together.
In recognition of the vital role of grassroots creative praxis in building our growing global network, FEMeeting announces its first community meetings taking place this Spring: “FEMeeting: Troy 2020” and “FEMeeting: Paris 2020”.
