On October 14, 2022, Artpolis conducted the “Education of young women on feminism” training in the municipality of Kaçanik.
26 girls and women had the opportunity to learn, discuss, develop and challenge internalized patriarchal beliefs, which according to them have influenced their lifestyles. Sharing experiences with each other raised to another level the desire for reflection and social change inside and outside the community where they live.
The lecturer of this training was the activist and feminist Liridona Osmanaj, who spoke about feminist terms, waves of feminism, movements and feminist campaigns, as well as the forms and ways that girls can follow to empower themselves and empower others.
In addition, the girls also held a quiz and other fun games through which the feminist lesson becomes even more meaningful.
This training was also organized with the support of the Municipality of Kaçanik, the House of Culture “Xheladin Kurtaj” and the Youth Center “Shtëpia e Shpresës”/”House of Hope”.
Artpolis is supported by the Kosovo Foundation for Civil Society (KCSF) program ‘EJA Kosovo’, co-financed by the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC), Sweden and the Government of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg.
