HER|visual|STORY Digital Photography Festival

from 25th to 28th November 2020 


This is not simply a festival,
but a call to action, an act of reappropriation and vindication of our own cultural production, ethic, and aesthetics:
we will not merely take on the problems arising from a one-way western-centric narration, but we will focus on the questions of class and of the gender-based underrepresentation.

HER|visual|STORY Digital Photography Festival curated by femLENS and F.I.G.A by Alysvisualart.com will take place from 25th to 28th November 2020.


The name refers to the Herstory movement launched by Alice Wroe.

We will critically explore the theme Space and Representation

We will dive into such important aspects as digital equality and visual literacy in a historical moment when the means of production and representation are closely connected.

Challenging the whole current situation, we have built up an inclusive and accessible program to bring together women from different levels of the photo industry, creatives, activists, communities.

There will be moments of apprenticeship and discussion, free downloadable material, free workshops, networking opportunities, and much more.

The program will be opened by a photographic work made by refugee women, who took part in the femLENS workshops: a unique, precious photo archive, a necessary premise to start the conversation.
We will have the opportunity to listen to women in the creative, artistic and cultural sectors, but we will also be working together to search for tactical and practical answers on photography, storytelling, writing and internet culture.

We have considered it necessary to gather women from different countries and with different backgrounds with the only aim of giving all the women the tools to empower and represent themselves.
