“City Space Architecture promotes an international exhibition on the theme of public space analyzed from a gender perspective, as part of the European project A-Place, co-financed by the Creative Europe program of the European Union. The exhibition will feature research and photographic projects from Italy, the United Kingdom, Belgium, Spain, Egypt, Kenya, Argentina, Cyprus and Canada, which insist on the urgency of rethinking cities and their public spaces with and for women.” City Space Architecture.
Empowering Women, Public Space, and Climate Change contributes to a captivating Exhibition organized by City Space Architecture, at the Museum of Public Space in Bologna. As mentioned above, the Exhibition is part of a European project A-Place.
We have contributed a diverse collection of creative visuals in varying formats. These will be displayed at the Public Space Museum. This exhibition has been made possible thanks to our partners, City Space Architecture. The visuals on display include photography, drawn art, and digital illustrations in various formats. The exhibition includes brand images from our initial launch, which featured photographic visuals from the International Women’s Day launch in 2021. These images showcase four incredible women: Diana Trang from Canada/North America; Kulsoom Hazara from Pakistan/South Asia; Laska Nenova from Bulgaria; and Rozina Spinnoy from Belgium in martial arts / sports poses.

She has also contributed a photograph of herself participating in the 2023 Women’s March.
Moreover, original art from our resident artist, Evelien Verschroeven, from Belgium is also on display. Her art includes beautiful emotive drawings of females that she often shares on her social media and with our community.
The exhibition also highlights a collection of brand visuals of diverse women, emphasizing the importance of diversity and intersectionality in the Empowering Women, Public Space, and Climate Change overall initiative.
