We continue working on the Design Innovation for Gender Equality project, both by including it in action based projects, now more or less in development work since located mostly in Africa, and as research. There was run a parallel session in the last Meeting of Teachers that took place in The Iceland Academy of Arts this January. This is an annual conference run by Cirrus Network that I am the leader of. Hildur Fjóla Antonsdóttir from the Gender Equality Training Programme at the University of Iceland participated on behalf of the University of Iceland.

Lorraine Farrelly from the Portsmouth School of Architecture has run a simple mapping research project during the last semester. This is part of our cooperation in Pillar I, Task 4, Design Innovation for equality and diversity in the University of Iceland Center of Excellence named EDDA.  here is her report.

Here is the original Project Description.

We are sending in an application for small funds for a meeting in Konstfack in Stockholm in the coming year. It came out in the parallel that they have been doing some interesting work in this field and it is important to continue the work that kind of became rekindled in the Cirrus meeting.
