Not only in Upper Austria, but also in Vorarlberg something is happening in terms of gender symmetry in art and culture:

Invitation card, graphic: Katharina Loidl

The IG Kultur Vorarlberg has already achieved initial successes with a women's study, e.g. equal representation on most committees and the anchoring of gender sensitivity in the criteria catalog of the art commissions. A lot has also happened in Upper Austria, e.g. the appointment of an equal number of women and men to the state cultural advisory board. However, we are still a long way from the principle of 50% of public attention, 50% of jobs and 50% of money for women. What can and must be done to achieve this goal? How can the federal states assume their responsibility in such a way that words are followed by concrete action?
