Art with Care: A discussion and networking format

Created by, featuring and for initiatives for visibility, equality and the recognition of care work in the arts

We still have quite a long way to go before we will have achieve family- and care-friendly working conditions in the arts. Over the course of a discussion followed by a networking meeting, we would like to create a starting point for the various initiatives in Berlin and throughout Germany that have dedicated themselves to achieving greater visibility, equality and recognition of care work to continue to network amongst themselves, share experiences and to strengthen each other. 

Amongst other, the specific recommendations for action from the artist lab of the initiatives Beyond Re:Production and the Bühnenmütter e.V., the opportunities for support provided by the Berlin Performing Arts Program on the topic of being a parent and working in the arts and the results of the model project on the topic of a good balance between work and family in the theater from the Frauenkulturbüros NRW, the office for women working in the field of culture in the state of North Rhine-Westphalia.

As a space for feminist visions, room to maneuver and intersectional futures, the networking event will initiate long-overdue transformations in the production methods and event organization within the arts in order to remove barriers for parents and people with care obligations. All initiatives that support care work in the arts are warmly invited to present themselves and their programming and to take part in the preparation of a new alliance of artists and culture makers with care obligations.  As a function of the initiators, the focus is currently placed on initiatives working in the fields of the visual and performing arts. We would be very grateful if you could let us know about other initiatives in all disciplines (and their participation)!

This event is intended both for active members of the initiatives as well as for everyone who has always wanted to become active themselves or would like to inform themselves about specific steps for improvement within their own practice.

The networking meeting is a cooperation between the Berlin Performing Arts Program and the Bühnenmütter e.V. and Beyond Re:Production ias part of the exhibition about motherhood and producing art We care. Do you? in the Alten Feuerwache.
