After one year of creative workshops, webinars and a fantastic closing event in Gdansk, the international project Creative Waves – Baltic Sisterhood for Change came to an end. Now it is time to present you the toolkit that includes all our findings and experience of this exciting project!
Creative Waves project under the leadership of Intercult Productions (Sweden), in cooperation with Baltic Sea Cultural Centre in Gdańsk and Estonian Women’s Studies and Resource Centre ENUT was supported by the CBSS Project Support Facility.
The project aimed at empowering representatives of vulnerable groups of women in the ever digitalising times of pandemia and postpandemia. Our goal was to jointly – women experts and participants – build a feeling of identity, belonging, continuity and agency. Creative Waves reached out to women artists, activists and creatives who may feel isolated, depressed and at a loss as the result of COVID-19 restrictions and the world moving more and more towards digital relations. Basing on intangible cultural heritage of the BSR and its localities such as embroidery, weaving, herb gathering, cooking close to nature, singing or producing music, we aimed at creating bonds and exchanges both in physical and virtual reality.
As the result of local real life workshops and online exchanges and meeting we developed a toolkit as guidance for further use which bases on the joint pool of experience and a special survey.
