#WeToo & ENGAGEMENT

In the wake of #MeToo, Ilse Ghekiere published the article #Wetoo: What Dancers Talk About When They Talk About Sexism. Her research into sexism in the Belgian dance sector developed into the anti-sexism campaign ENGAGEMENT. This evening will feature several artist-activists who are coming to talk about the steps that have been taken and the artistic strategies to tackle the abuse of power, discrimination, and inappropriate behaviour.

‘Ze doen het nog steeds. En geen enkele man heeft ooit zijn excuses aangeboden voor het onterecht uitleggen van dingen waar ik verstand van had en hij niet.’ Historica, schrijfster en activiste Rebecca Solnit schreef over een probleem zonder naam dat ondertussen bekend staat als 'mansplaining'. Schuif tijdens je lunchpauze mee aan tafel voor een gesprek, onder begeleiding van de RoSa-experts.
