Klara Rëgno | PhD researcher, Feminist Scholar, Senior Lecturer
I had the complete privilege of participating in the Faber Residency on Feminisms in November 2017. The coordinators of the program, director Francesc Serés, Gavina Freixa and Pau Àvila, responsible for administration and communication, welcomed the us in best possible way and made every effort to make our stay memorable and productive. The residency offered a wonderful opportunity to both focus on my own work and to engage in inspiring conversations with my co-residents, a diverse group of scholars, journalist and writers over dinner! What I also liked with Faber was the opportunity to engage in the local community. During my stay, I presented some of the themes in my book on gender/feminism, organization and leadership to the pupils at the Cor de Maria School.
The facilities at Faber are excellent and after intense working hours it was wonderful to clear the thoughts at some of the nearby trails to the background of a breathtaking scenery. I want to extend my deepest gratitude to the coordinating team and the Ajuntament the d’Olot and the Generalitat de Catalunya, departament de Cultura, for making this wonderful experience possible.
