Beschrijving van het evenement
On September 23, the Flanders Architecture Institute is organizing an international conference as the conclusion of Wiki Women Design.

Over dit evenement

The conference brings together researchers, experts and designers to reflect on women, heritage and historiography and their impact on the contemporary architecture and design professions.

Results of Wiki Women Design

The conference is an opportunity to reflect on the preliminary results of the project. This will include not only Wikipedia articles and important (re)discovered Belgian female designers, but also the awareness that the project has brought to a wider audience and the positive impact this has had on the design sector.

Women designers in heritage collections

During a lecture series, we will discuss future steps to promote research and education on women in design and the inclusion of women in design and architectural heritage collections. By doing so, we would engender a better representation of women in design history. We will take a closer look at the contemporary heritage field and contemplate a concerted effort to bridge the gender gap that still exists.

The contemporary field

We will carry the reflections through to women in contemporary design professions. There is still a large gender gap in contemporary architecture and design practices. The reasons for this can be sought on several levels. We will further explore this issue during the evening debate at MAD Brussels, where contemporary designers from different fields will share their experiences and reflect on how this gender gap can be overcome.
