The project in a few words

YoGender was a project organised in Rocca Corneta, Italy, by Polisportivo Fanano which focused on the reconnection with our bodies and spiritualities through body expression practices such as yoga, dance, or taekwondo. This was accompanied by other types of artistic activities, thus creating a safe space to exchange ideas about gender issues and non-violent communication.
Physical activities were complemented by poetic, musical and nonviolent expressions spaces toward the collective construction of a social environment free of discrimination, inequality, and violence,  informing and reflecting with a critical mind about gender policies, gender studies, and feminist agenda while nourishing body and mind with positive practices, from food to sport, to relationships, to nature.
