Women in Archives: COPEAM launches the second edition of the “Making a story from archives” contest

Following the success of the first edition of the contest, which was dedicated to the cultural heritage of the Balkans, COPEAM launches the second edition of "Making a story from archives" as part of the mission and activities carried out by its Audiovisual Heritage Commission, in synergy with its Gender Equality Commission. This year, the contest is dedicated to the common heritage of Euro-Mediterranean women and girls and the participation has been extended to COPEAM’s South-Mediterranean partner countries.

In recent years, women and girls’ rights and gender equality have been put at the core of international debates and at the heart of sustainable development. Bearing this in mind and being aware of the major role that archives play in building a common memory, the 2nd edition of “Making a story from Archives” contest aims to encourage the creative use of audiovisual archives via the production of works promoting a larger understanding of Mediterranean women’s diversity, history and cultural memories, through images and sounds from the past.
