Elles font la Photographie

The Diversity-Equality team of the French Ministry of Culture is currently working on the launch of a platform providing useful practical resources for women photographers and members of gender minorities and putting these professionals in touch with each other: "Elles font la photographie" is the first part of the more global project "Elles font la culture" which will then be declined with other disciplines. A questionnaire gives the possibility to give feedback and enhance the project services.

La mission Diversité-Egalité du ministère de la Culture, accompagné par l’Atelier numérique, l’incubateur de services numériques du Ministère, travaille actuellement au lancement  d’une plateforme de mise à disposition de ressources pratiques utiles pour les femmes photographes (et appartenant aux minorités de genre) et de mise en relation de ces professionnelles entre elles : Elles font la photographie, lequel est le premier volet du projet plus global Elles font la culture qui sera décliné ensuite dans les autres disciplines. L’équipe du projet a besoin de retours de femmes photographes pour affiner au mieux les services de la plateforme.
