This year within our program of feminist philanthropy and our edition “They inspire and motivate us” we continue to share with you the voices and experiences of women inspiring us. We present to you Zana Hoxha Krasniqi, the founder and director of the group Artpolis from Kosovo.
In continuing our work on the program Feminist Philanthropy, where we try, next to the actions for collecting money and encouraging individual donations, to present you the remarkable women who move boundaries, teach us new issues, inspire and make a personal impact – we have an opportunity to present you an exceptional woman Julia Varley, actress, director, professor and writer.
Within our program Feminist Philanthropy we continue to publish interviews we made with our friends all over the world. Investing money, time, knowledge, is an important part of our activism and work. Voices of feminists from various spheres of social, art and political life inspire and motivate us always.
Within our programme of feminist philanthropy it is important to us to raise the issues of investing money into women’s human rights, into a society where women would make changes, where we could hear opinions from various spheres. Zoe Gudović recently visited Transit festival in Odin theatre and it inspired us to make a series of interviews with women who made significant changes in the world of art, as well as in their environments and their lives.
Within our program of Feminist philanthropy we were happy to host Marta Drury, our friend , long-term individual donor from the United States, peace and feminist activist , supporter of women’s groups, individuals and initiatives, founder and director of the Heart and Hand Fund.
