Under the Covid-19 pandemic, inequalities have led to a different impact on women and men, including an increase in violence against women (VAW). Gender equality is a necessary condition to achieve growth and social cohesion and a key element in the prevention of VAW.

As gender is socially constructed and art is the expression of the society it is embedded in, if looked from a gender perspective, it becomes self-explanatory that, too often, art has contributed to the crystallisation and reproduction of gender stereotypes and unequal relations between men and women. For the same reason, art has an intrinsic power to rewrite the collective perception of men’s and women’s roles, striving for more equality, equity and inclusion.

Based on this rationale, REGENERART aims to promote art and creativity as innovative tools to increase the competences of secondary school teachers and students to re-think gender roles and stereotypes towards a more equal and inclusive society, free of gender-based violence against women (GBVAW) and discriminations.

E-learning course

A self-paced E-learning course for teachers. Teachers will learn how to make an innovative use of art and creativity and to promote equal rights between men and women, increase the critical thinking and capacity of young generations to recognise unbalanced power relationships and prevent risky behaviours that could result in gender-based violence.

At the end of the course, teachers will have the possibility to download a Quick Guide that supports them in setting up and conduct creative educational activities with their students, using art to talk about gender stereotypes and equality between women and men.

REGENERART Textbook : Looking at Art from a gender perspective

A textbook taking teachers, students, or any other reader, to a journey throughout art history. The textbook will present explanatory examples of how art has been influenced by the gender roles existing at that time and, concurrently, how art must have influenced the societies in which it was and still is embedded.
