Abstract:

  • FACES is an international mailing list that connects women: activists, artists, critics, theoreticians, technicians, journalists, researchers, programmers, net workers, web designers and educators, all women who share an interest in the media and communication arts. FACES started informally, and has continued since 1997 as a voluntary list, using free services, and continues because of a real need for women to connect internationally. Many local lists have been inspired by FACES, and projects at festivals, exhibitions and symposia have been created by list subscribers.
