The conference 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 under- and misrepresentation of women artists, non-binary and genderqueer artists in the Dutch art world is undeniable. What is striking though, is not just the lack of available data but also the lack of an intersectional approach in current research. The time is here to bring about change. How can we act, instead of acknowledging the status quo over and over again?
