By virtue of the Grant Contract – Education, Audiovisual and Culture Executive Agency of the European Commission - 607622-CREA-1-2019-1-ES-CULT-COOP1 for the action entitled Birth Cultures: a Journey through European History and Traditions around Birth and Maternity, hereinafter referred to as Birth Cultures, is a project co-funded by the European Union, designed and managed under the responsibility of the Interarts Foundation for International Cultural Cooperation, hereinafter referred to as Interarts, with headquarters in Spain, carrer Mallorca 272, 9ª, 08037 Barcelona.
Birth Cultures is a project under the Creative Europe Culture Programme (2014-2020) that contributes to preserve and transmit, through arts and culture, birth and maternity traditional knowledge and practices as part of European intangible cultural heritage. The project is implemented by Interarts (coordinator, Spain) in cooperation with Frauenmuseum Hittisau (Austria), Frauenmuseum Merano (Italy), Gender Museum (Kharkiv) and in association with the International Association of Women’s Museums (IAWM), ECCOM (Italy) and Birth Café Campaign (Germany), as associated partners. It will run from November 2019 to April 2022.
According to the German associations’ Birth Café Campaign and Hebammen für Deutschland (Midwives for Germany), when it comes to pregnancy and birth the existing lack of instruments, such as historical research and exhibitions, does not enable for these topics to become accessible to different publics and audiences.
Against this background, BIRTH CULTURES has the following specific objectives:
- To strengthen capacities of and collaboration between women’s museums in Europe to raise awareness on women’s health and sexual and reproductive rights.
- To enhance intercultural dialogue and artistic co-creation around values and practices related to culture, birth and maternity.
- To improve access, including young people and migrants, to European cultural and creative works and intangible cultural heritage.
