Feminine Moments' newsletter

November 2015

Edited by Birthe Havmoeller

Dear Reader

In September I introduced you to this new format for the newsletter and now I have launched a re-design of Feminine Moments with a nice new format for the blog. I am still tinkering with the website, but all the basic functions of the website works fine. I have also start re-branding Feminine Moments with a new 'Google friendly' title/slogan:  'Feminine Moments – Queer Feminist Art Worldwide'. However, Feminine Moments will still continue to present  fine art made by lesbian, bisexual and queer women artists worldwide and I hope that you will send me details about arts events in you country which you think may be of interest for the readers of Feminine Moments. I am doing my own research each week but I can only look in one direction at a time and my research will always be limited by my moderate knowledge of other languages, so any help with materials - text and images from around the world - for the art blog will be much appreciated. I especially welcome collaborations with guest bloggers.
