Jennifer Tuckett, Director of University Women in the Arts: “We are delighted to be working with GenPol on this panel event as part of our new major project we are running with GenPol on how to prevent abuse in the arts. We hope the panel will offer important advice for female arts students, women wanting to work in the arts, and those who work with them in the education sector and arts industry”.
Lilia Giugni, CEO of GenPol: “We are thrilled to be partnering with University of Women in the Arts to help prevent sexual and gender-based violence in the art industry. Discrimination, sexism and actual abuse undermine the lives and careers of too many women artists. We hope the panel will offer a little taste of the forthcoming book on which we are working together and the solutions we propose.”
