The exhibition will take the form of a looped video display for international works, in conjunction with the production of an e-catalogue. Local artists may submit work for physical display: 2D & 3D welcomed.

Artists selected to participate will be asked for a €15 contribution to cover production costs.
It is more than a cliché that gender plays a crucial role in religion, as most religious orders in the world were, and currently are, dominated by men. The role of women in cultic settings is, as a rule, secondary, as is also the authority of female ministers of religion, while the social benefits of those appointed with religious duties are also incomparable with the privileges received by men. Hence, this year we invite works that explore the female share in leadership roles related to religion (such as goddesses, saints, prophetesses, priestesses, nuns, preachers, witches, shamans, gurus, heads of religious orders and more), and/or explore attitudes towards such women. We welcome works that deal with all religious systems from ancient to present times.
To take part please send an application to email@example.com by 15th September 2022.
