Young artists from 9 countries met on the North Sea island Baltrum to jointly develop short movies, songs, music video clips and small live performances on the topic “gender”: Where do gender roles provided by society give us privileges, where do they limit us? And how can we share the privileges and overcome the limits?

Results of the project were very successfully presented in Cologne on November 24th at Motoki-Wohnzimmer.

Partners of the international ROOTS & ROUTES network were Stichting ROOTS & ROUTES (Netherlands), Subjective Values Foundation (Hungary), Rock in Faches (France), Synergy of Music Theatre (Greece), Rutes I Origens (Spain) and ABi Associates CIC (United Kingdom).
