What do women contribute to cultural heritage? Are we aware of the role they have played in creation, patronage, not to mention transmission of our culture? This course seeks to provoke reflection and overcome preconceived ideas regarding women’s legacy, since cultural heritage should not be conveying an intransigent narrative of the past, but rather offering a narrative committed to current problems and disposed to a critical review thereof. We firmly believe our heritage can be interpreted from the gender perspective; nevertheless, this means having to revise everything we thought we knew until now, by inserting a different long-lasting message inspiring a real change of attitude.
The course will be held in Bilbao from November 2021 to February 2022
This is aimed at cultural heritage professionals in the widest possible sense, i.e. everyone from public administration, educational centres, museums and cultural installations interested in completing their training and education with skills aimed at fostering inclusion, accessibility and equality.
Our teaching staff comprises people with a vast contrasted career, who are convinced of the ability of cultural heritage to change the way of thinking and positively impact society. This specific training course on gender perspective applied to cultural heritage with a new way of interpreting totally different from traditional patriarchal structures and androcentric views to convey those values of a fairer society for both men and women is the result of said staff’s personal commitment and determination.
