Would you like to contribute to the creation of inclusive and sensitive political environment? Apply for our seminar ‘Art as Shelter’ and broaden and claim more private and political space through art!

About the event:

GEF together with CDN is announcing a call for Participants for the international seminar ‘Art as Shelter’. The seminar will take place between 7th – 11th April in Tirana, Albania.

We would like empower the participants with tools to broaden safe space and claim more private and political space through non-formal education and art. In particular, we would like to:

  • build understanding of patriarchy as a dominant power that operates in the society and feminism as a theory and strategy to challenge dominant power relations;
  • create an intercultural safe space for young women, transgender, non-binary, genderqueer, agender and intersex people to share their private and political struggles and to explore tools to counteract them;
  • use art to empower young women, transgender, non-binary, genderqueer, agender and intersex people to stand up against patriarchy and broaden the safe space by giving visibility to women* through art.

The programme will be based on the principles of non-formal education and intercultural learning. The project is the first phase of our annual work plan “Art for the Young, the Queer, the Feminists of Eastern Europe .



Costs: The full cost of travel, visa, lodging (accommodation in multi-bed rooms, vegetarian and vegan food, and refreshments) will be covered. In exchange, we ask for a participation fee of 20 EUR for participants coming from non-EU countries and 50 EUR for participants coming from EU countries. Applicants for whom paying this fee is an obstacle for participation, should still apply and mention this in their application (not a selection criteria).

CDN will reimburse 90% of the travel costs for the participants from the non-EU countries and 80% of travel costs for the participants coming from the EU countries, within reasonable limits and within Europe, with the condition to combine the most economic and environmentally friendly way (lowest price + travel time + CO2 emissions).

DEADLINE for submitting online applications: 3rd of March 2020 at Midnight CET. 

 Apply here! 


This project is organised by the Green European Foundation with the support of Cooperation and Development Network Eastern Europe, with the financial support of the European Parliament to the Green European Foundation, and supported by the European Youth Foundation of Council of Europe.
