On February 24th, the Women’s Fund Armenia held a meeting with its local partners cooperating with us within the project “Feminist Landscapes – Civil Society Dialogue with All Vocies.” The aim of the meeting was to get updates from our partners regarding their ongoing projects.
Below you can find updated information about our partners’ projects:
- Socioscope NGO – “The question of women after the revolution.” The researchers of the organization are doing the mapping for the research, in particular studying the manipulations of women’s questions in media and in politics. They are also studying the “Women for peace” campaign. The results of the research will be shared during upcoming webinars.
- “Pink” human rights NGO – “Queer women empowerment through art.” The organization has already gathered a group of women who have expressed a desire to participate in the program, with whom they plan to have meetings and launch the actual program. The meetings will be aimed at discussing and identifying the difficulties and challenges faced by queer women in the arts. The whole process will be documented, and the works of art (of different genres and types) created by the women’s group will be presented in an exhibition.
- Agate Rights Defense Center For Women With Disabilities NGO – “Feminism and Disability.” The organization has already completed one of the components of the program, a series of webinars on feminism for women with disabilities. Sign language interpretation was provided during them. The next phase of the project envisages focus group discussions with women, as a result of which the organization will develop a policy document for other organizations, helping them to be more sensitive in their work with women with disabilities. It is also planned to prepare a guideline for the same purpose.
- Non-discrimination and Equality Coalition NGO – “Theater of Equality”. On March 1, Zero Discrimination Day, the theatrical performance entitled “Unexampled Stories” will premiere. Details of the event can be found here. Performances are also planned in Vanadzor and Gyumri. On March 2, the Coalition plans to hold a press conference to publicize and, if necessary, comment on the theatrical performance, thus drawing attention to the manifestations of discrimination in our society.
During the meeting we also discussed the webinars planned for the coming months, their topics and schedule. We will inform you about them in more detail in the near future.
