We are looking forward to our hybrid 6th IAWM International Conference of Women’s Museums at Women’s Museum Hittisau, Austria.
A piece of music from “choir of mothers”, a hot air balloon in the shape of an udder, a clash of western and Mexican birth cultures – the opening evening of the IAWM 2021 Conference Hittisau And still we* create has it all, with a colorful range of artistic performances on the subject Birth. At the 6th International Conference of Women’s Museums between August 31 and September 3, we will offer a varied program from lectures, film screenings and performance artists.
The Tuesday (Aug. 31) and Wednesday (Sept. 1) of the conference are entirely dedicated to the subject of childbirth. We wish to invite you to join us for the public sections of this international event. There will be performance art, vibrant and informative lectures, plus a film screening and storytelling café.
During the private sections of the conference, to be held on Thursday (Sept. 2) and Friday (Sept. 3), the members of the International Association of Women’s Museums (IAWM) will meet for the general assembly and for the election of the new board.
Despite the ongoing pandemic we want as many people as possible to be able to participate in the 6th International Conference of Women’s Museums, therefore the conference is a hybrid event, both in person and online tickets are available.
