FEMINA: Closing the Gender Gap in Europe
‘Femina – Inclusion of Women in the Cultural and Creative Sector’ is an Erasmus Plus co-funded project Femina – Inclusion of Women in the Cultural and Creative Sector (2022-1-LU01-KA210-VET-000081625) . It aims to break the barrier linked to education, job, entrepreneurship and social inclusion that stands in front of women who are involved in the cultural and creative sector (CCS) across Europe.
The FEMINA consortium set up a fruitful long-term collaboration with the XU University of Applied Sciences, Germany. The consortium members introduced the students with the main project goals and objectives as well as explaining insights about the gender inequality in Europe which concerns the CCS. In addition, the students were informed about the latest project activities and declared their willingness to be involved and give their meaningful contribution.
Luxembourg Creative Lab initiated an online discussion with the students on which the main problems of the CCS and more specifically – how to close the gender gap were discussed. One of the main problems that was considered during the meeting, referred to the inequality of the remuneration in the creative sector across Europe. Possible solutions were discussed as well as highlighting the need of executing more social campaigns which aim at changing the gender prejudice among certain publics.
Furthermore, students were introduced to the latest EU-funding opportunities and how they could join Erasmus Plus as participants and beneficiaries.
