The first meeting of the researchers and artists of The Dissident Goddesses’ Network took place in Krems from March 3 to March 5, 2019. In addition to the core team, a number of members of the Scientific Advisory Board were present, who also gave short exciting lectures on their research areas. It was a great pleasure to hear Walpurga Antl-Weiser from the Naturhistorisches Museum in Vienna speak about the Venus of Willendorf. Franz Pieler, Director of Landesarchäologie NÖ and Director of the Museum für Ur- und Frühgeschichte in Asparn a.d. Zaya, who spoke about finds of female-shaped ceramic figures attributed to the Aunjetitz culture in Brunn am Gebirge, was equally enthusiastic. Hermann Dikowitsch, Head of the Lower Austrian Department of Cultural Affairs, also attended the meeting. In addition to the discussion of the individual parts of the project, the project members had the opportunity to get to know each other. Some of them had traveled from far away, like Ebadur Rahman from Santa Cruz, California and Boyan Manchev with Ani Vasef from Sofia, Bulgaria. Project manager Felicitas Thun-Hohenstein wished the project all the best and the researchers and artists the energy and acumen to create a complex and fruitful narrative from the stimulating topic of translating the “heritage” of the goddess figurines into the present and future.
