FEMeeting Taos

FEMeeting is coming to Taos! The international conference for women in art, science and technology is taking place July 24-30, 2023. Launched in 2017, the conference “FEMeeting: Women in Art, Science and Technology” was driven by the desire to develop and promote more direct collaboration between individuals who identify themselves as Women, independently of their sex. The idea behind FEMeeting was orchestrated by the Portuguese artist Marta de Menezes and scholar Dalila Honorato, after realizing that women in the field of Art and Science have an unquestionable presence worldwide. 

FEMeeting Taos 2023, was coordinated in collaboration with STEMarts Lab and Marta de Menezes, currently a Fulbright Scholar Program awardee 2023 at the University of New Mexico. FEMeeting launched a double call for conference presentations and workshops, and it has received nearly 81 submissions from nine countries. Among these, three artists had their workshops selected to bring their unique expertise to the Taos and Northern New Mexico community. This is an extraordinary opportunity for our local community to mingle with professional women working at the intersection of art, science and technology.
