S(v)odobnost

S(v)odobnost, a word play combining »freedom« and »contemporaneity«, is the title of the project that City of Women is part of together with four other contemporary art organizations in Slovenia. Fully entitled S(v)odobnost – develop your potentials through contemporary art, the project is focused on the partners’ development and implementation of arts and culture educational programs for youth aged between 14 and 20. The second target group consists of teachers and youth workers who want to introduce contemporary art practices (as well as venues where these can be experienced) to their pupils or students. 

Contemporary art widens the horizons and encourages the creative expression of young people. To pedagogues, it offers a variety of fresh approaches to difficult social issues – both within and outside the classroom. The project aims at integrating arts and cultural education in the curricula on all levels of schooling. Our short-term goal is to create viable working conditions for contemporary art organizations in Slovenia, so that they could continually, in cooperation with experts on pedagogy, create and implement excellent arts and culture education programs.

City of Women has joined the project because we believe that access to, creation of and knowledge about contemporary art are essential for the development of a society, based on equality. Within the project, City of Women is shaping its methodological approaches to arts and culture education according to feminist pedagogy, works as an advocacy group and tries to ensure long-term funding. These activities are coordinated by Tea Hvala.

The project lasts from October 2018 until the end of the year 2019.
