The project ‘Women in Earthen Architecture’ that was done by Fine art & crafts club was supported by Provincial Secretariat for Economy, healing Employment and Gender Equality within competition for non-refundable funds for citizen’s associations from territory of Autonomous Province of Vojvodina. The aim of this competition was to support programmes and activities for improvement the position of women in rural areas.zene u zemljanoj arhitekturi

The main idea of this project was to point out unfairly forgotten role of women in maintenance of houses and architectural tradition. The second idea was to preserve and save from oblivion all the knowledge that for centuries passed from generation to generation, sovaldi as well as to revive this knowledge, cialis improve it and adapt to modern times, as we continue to use them.

This project is only an attempt to start this important issue and search for rare but courageous women who still look after our houses and villages and protect them from extinction.

Although the original idea was only to collect traditional knowledge and recipes, it expended unexpectedly, and increased in wider context as the story itself broadened. Thus, this is also:

.
  • The story about women who were not craftswomen, but were forced to deal with the constructions due to life circumstances.

  • The story about careful guardian writer women, who patiently collected knowledge, to whom we owe privilege to for using this traditional knowledge nowadays.

  • The story about young craftswomen, who are preserving houses currently, and who are in recent years more and more

It is the shame that there was not enough time to do more detailed research, but we sincerely hope that this is only a start, and that in the next few years there will be a entire list of craftswomen from this region. It is important to keep memory of them and their knowledge. After all, those women are our grandmothers, our ancestors…

Within the project, in addition to survey of old and new craftswomen that was conducted, three workshops were organized in next locations: Mosorin, Donja Tavankuta and Belo Blato, where craftswomen presented themselves, and were participants of workshops had opportunities to see where and how craftswomen were and still are working.

During the project, in cooperation with Secretariat, the debate ‘The Role of Women in Architectural Crafts’ was organized; and which gathered more than few interesting women and their researches as well as practically applied projects.
