Workshops and Symposia

Events

The network's principal activities were the organisation of three symposia and four workshop seminars.  Details of each event and its documentation can be accessed using the left hand menu.

The symposia were public events with speakers drawn from around Europe the US and Canada, whose content and themes were informed by the initial network seminar discussions.  All the presentations delivered at the symposia have been fully documented. 

The symposia were:

The seminars were small events that were attended by members of the network institutions and distinguished invited guests. The seminars focussed on critical problems which arise in the feminist curatorial practice. The seminar discussions are documented in a short written report from the host institution.  The seminars were:
