Welcome to FEMeeting WEB 2020
The two first FEMeetings took place in Portugal and were organized by Cultivamos Cultura. The outcomes of 2018 and 2019 conferences have been many and, though most are intangible, among the project’s distinguishable objectives there are: (a) a strong personal support through instant internet communication between women doing research work (in the broadest sense of the term) in art, science and technology (b) and the encouragement towards the formation of local nodes to support research and artistic creation developed to enable a wide network of direct communication among them and encourage trust.
It is in this sense that FEMeeting announced its first community meetings taking place on March 20th-21st, 2020, “FEMeeting: Troy” and “FEMeeting: Paris”. Organized with Media Sanctuary’s NATURE Lab Initiative (North Troy Art, Technology, and Urban Research in Ecology), Leonardo/Olats and co-founders Marta de Menezes and Dalila Honorato, the events were cancelled due to the COVID-19 crisis.
Consequently FEMeeting 2020 reshaped its call for participation to its community and launched “FEMeeting: WEB” dedicated to the presentation of digital contributions reflecting personal responses to this pandemic moment.
