Fifth measure of the Cultural Rights Plan

What do we actually mean when we talk about feminist cultural politics?

The MACBA is hosting a debate on Wednesday to discuss the measure on Feminist Culture in the Cultural Rights Plan.

Women are spectators, they are directors, they are in charge of cultural programmes and facilities that dedicate their efforts to bringing culture to society as a whole. Women are culture, and they make culture. And feminist culture is the protagonist of the fifth measure of the Cultural Rights Plan that empowers citizens as subjects of cultural rights.

Feminist Culture: the right to a diverse and equitable culture is the title of this fifth measure in which a series of proposals on how to work on cultural policies with an inclusive approach will be presented and debated on Wednesday, 16 March at 6 p.m. in an event at the Meier Auditorium at MACBA. It will be led by three women who are currently involved in culture in the city: Elvira Dyangani Ose, director of the MACBA; Carla Alsina, feminist activist and cultural worker; and Andrea Artero, actress, teacher and member of the Dones i Cultura collective.

What should the role of women be? How can parity in governing bodies be achieved and how can the way we look at the cultural policies they make be changed? How can women's participation in cultural activities be encouraged without forgetting family reconciliation? These and many other questions will be debated as the fifth of the nine measures that make up the Cultural Rights Plan promoted by the Institut de Cultura de l'Ajuntament de Barcelona is laid out.
