FemArt Festival - The 8th edition
FemArt Festival - The 8th edition will take place on October 15-20, 2020 in Prishtina.
FemArt is an internationally recognized feminist festival, which has managed to empower women and girls in the recognition of their full rights through good and quality art created by artists and activists in order to achieve equality in political, economic, cultural, personal, and social level.
FemArt Festival 2020 motto is "Solidarity and Resilience".
Solidarity as a principle of mutual support between women and girls, artists and activists working for gender equality and women's rights.
Resilience as the ability to face adversity, trauma and challenge by standing up whenever we fall and raising our voice whenever they try to silence us.
