What is MoMoWo?
MoMoWo - Women’s Creativity Since the Modern Movement is a large-scale cooperation project co-funded by the Creative Europe Programme within the Culture sub-programme. MoMoWo is an interdisciplinary non-profit project that contributes to create European added value, as expected by Creative Europe.
From a pan-european and interdisciplinary perspective, MoMoWo considers women work within architecture, industrial and interior design professions of cultural and social relevance for contemporaneity. The project aims to share significant european cultural heritage forged by women working within the design professions, which has been to a significant extent "hidden from history".
MoMoWo highlights, reflects and debates the diverse contributions of women in the design professions, promoting their cultural and economic significance. Through this perspective, examining the role of women in these fields will broaden the design professions history and heritage, as well as fostering and safeguarding European cultural diversity.
All MoMoWo activities are designed in order to raise awareness to women's work within the design fields. As such, they have the potential to generate a long-lasting impact, strengthening social and economic roles of women, whether they're working in any given field of design or still in training.
