In 2015 CURE Foundation is celebrating the 10th Anniversary of the Festival of Women’s Art and Activism in Bosnia and Herzegovina. This unique Festival in the Bosnian and Herzegovinian art scene promotes the feminist activist cultural scene and creates a space for the artistic feminist activist expression.
PitchWise gathers socially engaged women artists, activists, theoreticians, feminists and all those concerned for the women’s issues in BiH and the region.
The CURE Foundation works on connecting and networking with the feminist work and culture, and this year we celebrate our experience and continue to move the margins of the artistic – activists scene.
The main subject of 2015 PitchWise Festival is:
RE_Visited! – An overview of 10 PitchWise Festival years
With this year’s PitchWise Festival we wish to highlight our dedication to the continuity and visibility of occupation of public spaces and transformation of patriarchal practices into the culture of feminist narratives, questioning imposed hetero norms and offering a different culture – culture that promotes peace and nonviolence.
In 2015 we celebrate PitchWise, emphasizing that with PW we think globally – and we act locally. It is how we started – by occupying space – and that is what we still do.
We are Re-visiting the first PitchWise established in 2006, and from then, each September, we are using the PitchWise Festival of Women’s Art and Activism in BiH as a tool against the oppression of the patriarchacy. Through our first PitchWise we aimed to draw the attention of the public to the necessity of occupying of public space for the purpose of questioning and transformation of the society, and towards the necessity of taking over the responsibility for changes in direct social environment.
In 2015 we still work towards the changes in direct social environment and we question feminism in its whole spectrum of diversities, which enables us that even when we criticize and deconstruct the position of power and those who are in positions of power – we still propose possible solutions.
We look forward to welcome you to this year’s PitchWise festival, so please send the completed application form to email@example.com latest by 28.08.2015. by midnight.
