Inspiring symposium with Germaine Greer, Hedy d'Ancona, Tijs Goldschmidt, Sunny Bergman, Afaina de Jong, Anneke Smelik and more!

After DREAM AMSTERDAM editions with Spencer Tunick (2007), Ryoji Ikeda (2008), and Peter Funch (2009), Dream Amsterdam Foundation focuses on a theme: 'The Woman from A to Z'. Through the ages, women have been represented in various ways. Still, it's pretty difficult to pin down what a woman is. We can, though, explore 'The Essence of Woman'.

GIRL, YOU'LL BE A WOMAN SOON is an elaborate program that explores this essence through artistic expression of both female and male artists, where the woman is central to various forms of imagination and meaning. The event is not solely geared towards women, but is also an invitation for men to behold, (re)discover and explore the woman. It offers an experience, interaction, as well as an in-depth focus and discussion.

An inspiring symposium, that presents the 'Essence of Woman' through artistic expression, where the woman is central to various forms of imagination and meaning. Theoretical, contemplative readings are mixed with practical examples and contributions by an amazing line-up of international and renowned speakers. Just to mention a few. Politician, geographer and sociologist Hedy d'Ancona (NL) opens the symposium. Professor Germaine Greer (AU) lectures about The Whole Woman - an endeavor to answer the question whether there is such a creature as a woman. Professor Anneke Smelik (NL) lectures about Female Representation - images of women in visual culture. Writer and evolutionary biologist Tijs Goldschmidt (NL) talks about What Makes a Woman a Woman - evolution and female behavior from an anthropological and Darwinist perspective. Architect Afaina de Jong (NL) speaks about Female Architecture - the Essence of Woman seen from her profession. Sunny Bergman (NL), actress, director and cinematographer lectures about Female Sexuality - beauty, habits and rituals. Spokesperson of the Dove Self-Esteem program Vilna van Betten (NL) give a presentation on Self-Esteem and Media. Olfactive designer Bernardo Fleming (ARG) gives a presentation about the Scent of a Woman - feminine scent and the perfume he designed especially for GIRL, YOU'LL BE A WOMAN SOON.

The symposium is accompanied by remarkable and illustrating films, videos and fragments, but also live performances by Minka Parkkinen (SWE) with a scene out of Innenshau by Jakop Ahlbom , a first view of the choreography Juxtapose by Cecilia Moisio (FI) and poetry by Wonder Allen Smith (UK).
