REGENERART aims to promote art and creativity as innovative tools to increase the competences of secondary school teachers and students to re-think gender roles and stereotypes towards a more equal and inclusive society, free of gender-based violence against women and discriminations.

Regenerart – Our experience so far

It happened for a couple of us from the Romanian project team, while chatting with fellow workers about this project the Fine Arts High School “Dinu Lipatti” is implementing, to receive genuine feed back like:

“That’s is really interesting! Gender violence and stereotypes that even art can induce? And then fighting against it with art tools?!”

When we applied for the project as partner institutions, in our mind the most important target was the final beneficiary: the students. We wanted new learning experiences for them, outside the box of the traditional learning curricula, to prepare them to become responsible members of the society and why not, active citizens on fighting against VAW. How? By training their trainers, the teachers.

Therefore, the project’s objectives were important for our team and relevant for the community.

In May 2021 we organized a regional online Conference to launch and promote the project.

70 participants from various educational institutions and from our local partners in this project participated, including, of course, from the institution implementing the project in Romania, the Fine Arts High School “Dinu Lipatti”, Pitesti.

Going through the project’s presentation, international partners, Italian coordinator, objectives and activities, final results, to announcing the soon coming training course for teachers. 

Final conclusions? Curious participants, interested and looking forward to be part of the project.

What does gender equality look like?

During the 2021 Generation Equality Forum, it was asked to artists all over the world what gender equality meant for them: over 1000 submissions arrived, telling different stories but united by the vision of a future without inequalities and stereotypes. This is the meaning of the campaign #ActForEqual to promote fundamental human rights.

This is the same goal that we set with REGENERART, the project co-funded by the Program Erasmus+ of the European Union that Pangea Onlus is leading, aims at deconstructing stereotypes that have been transmitted through art, by revisiting in creative and innovative ways some works and developing new ones to promote gender equality and prevent violence against women.

We all have the potential to support gender equality, whether by educating family and friends, speaking up on social media, or challenging stereotypes through creative expression.
