Project «Woman 3000» it is 27 photographers from 17 countries and more than 200 women took part in the initiative. The goal of this project is to broaden the picture of a woman and with photo art celebrate her as the life force of our society, transformational force, an individual and social force in the PAST (50-70 years old women), PRESENT (30-40 years old) and FUTURE (10-25 years old). It is essential to underline the role of women in shaping our behavior and, transferring the cultural knowledge across generations and, therefore, carrying out our cultural modeling.
In April 2010 Garage Gang group organized Woman 3000 Tour that included the exhibition of 300 photographic stories to 5 of Ukraine (Kyiv, Lviv, Odessa, Simferopol, Kharkiv) in more than 20 alternative locations (parks, streets, maternity houses, markets, roads, hotels etc.), discussions “Woman in modern society: Looking for ways of self-realization” and press-conferences with music concerts, poetry on the street festival and other art doings. Project provides a dialogue between generations and adds some new energy to the discussion concerning possibilities of women’s self-realization at the beginning of the 3rd millennium.
