Atlante del Genere. Alla scoperta dell'euforia di genere

As professionals who deal with transgender health, we strongly feel the need to contribute to the creation of an inclusive environment that values ​​and legitimizes the uniqueness of each individual person. This also includes promoting a gender culture based on scientific grounds in order to avoid ideological exploitation. From this point of view, the Gender Atlas is proposed as a tool that supports dialogue (in this case with artistic expression) in order to counter the homo-transphobic prejudices, which still too often characterize our social and cultural fabric. .

Transferencia

Tranferencia is a project that proposes a dance focused on inclusiveness, addressing issues such as gender, racism, homophobia: problems that our society, while acknowledging and to some extent fighting them, is not addressing from the point of view of the legal protection of those who are victims of it. In this work, archetypes and stereotypes related to masculinity and the body understood in an anthropological sense are deconstructed.

JUNTARTE. The creative cadena que hace la escena inclusiva is a COSPE project in partnership with the Fabbrica Europa Foundation, Asociación Hermanos Saíz (AHS), Centro Oscar A. Romero (OAR), Consejo Nacional de las Artes Escénicas (CNAE), Centro Nacional de Investigación de las Artes Escénicas (CNIAE), Ministerio de Cultura (MINCULT), co-financed by the European Union. The project was created to strengthen the creative and productive abilities of cultural operators and artists operating in Cuba, with the aim of supporting a process of changing the perception of both the productive and economic value, and the social and political function of the artistic sector. within which the themes of diversity and inclusion are still little explored and under-represented.
