The project will work to empower young women in the industrial cities of Arctic Russia, developing artistic and cultural exchange between Russia and Sweden. Mining cities require more male than female labour and are permeated by masculine culture. Gender inequality is rarely problematized and there are few initiatives supporting women and raising questions about gender asymmetry. The project will develop the discussion of gender issues and stimulate art initiatives which support women.
