CoUNTess has been presenting data on gender representation in the Australian contemporary visual arts sector since 2008, and has become a valuable online resource that provides statistics and data analysis. To launch their fundraising campaign, CoUNTess has been touring to create a national conversation on gender bias and inclusivity in the arts.
Elvis Richardson, founder of CoUNTess who will share the history of CoUNTess, their data collection methodologies, aims and objectives, along with strategies for educators and institutions to address gender balance in the arts.
Richardson will join in conversation with Dr Courtney Pedersen co-director of the feminist collective LEVEL and educator at QUT, alongside Brisbane-based artist Naomi Blacklock who examines intersectional feminist identities in her practice. Together, they will critique and strategise how to address gender bias in the arts.
This is a free event, with all welcome. Find out more on the IMA website here.
