The Roadmap for Equality in the Arts in the Netherlands, 18 January 2020
Conference 'The Roadmap for Equality in the Arts in the Netherlands'
ArtEZ University of the Arts, Arnhem. January 18, 2020
The conference The Roadmap to Equality in the Arts in the Netherlands aims to raise awareness, gather available data and mobilise existing networks and collective knowledge in order to establish a gender equality roadmap in the arts in the Netherlands. With performances, keynotes, presentations and panels on data as a catalyst for change, quota, new platforms, art education, discrimination and harassment and models for change.
The Roadmap to Equality in the Arts is an ongoing project to address the position of women artists, non-binary and genderqueer artists in the Netherlands. The initiative is born in the aftermath of the #metoo movement, personal experiences and various surveys recently published in the arts and in the industry in the Netherlands and in Europe. This intersectional and strategic coalition aims to advocate for equality, solidarity and diversity on every level, and address the under-representation and misrepresentation of women artists, women artists of colour, nonbinary and genderqueer artists. Due to a lack of data collection and monitoring, there is no overview of the situation in the visual arts in terms of income, parental leave, pensions, art education, exhibitions, public collections, grants and residencies, etc. Many institutions still haven’t implemented a system of reporting racism, discrimination or harassment. How can we address this situation collectively?
PANEL: NEW PLATFORMS
The second panel focuses on what an intersectional approach might entail. What questions, insights, new platforms and acts of resistance arise when we ‘live’ this intersectional approach?
