Platform for Gender Cultural Practices:
Meeting of Feminist and Queer Initiatives from the Post- Yugoslav Space
As a special 2013 addition to other activities, Red Dawns are organizing a very
important meeting, “Platform for Gender Cultural Practices”: Meeting of the
Feminist and Queer Initiatives from the Post-Yugoslav Space. In 2006, Red
Dawns organized the initial meeting which was followed up much later, in
2012, by two meetings: in Zagreb (organized by VoxFeminae festival) and in
Belgrade (organized by cultural association ACT Women). Red Dawns want to
support this renewed interest in networking and cooperation as it is vital for
our continuous work.
At the meeting, representatives of fifteen women's, feminist, LGBTI, and queer initiatives (festivals, collectives, organizations, etc.) from the Post-Yugoslav space are going to discuss possible strategies for co-operation, and continue to develop our platform for the exchange of our experience, knowledge, program items, and staff. Our aim is to enlarge the network and make the connections stronger, also by discussing our options for joint applications for funding.
The two day’s program is going to include: meetings about possibilities for future cooperation, a workshop about funding possibilities, a workshop about burn-out in activism, and a round table discussion, which will include a short presentation of each initiative and Platform for Gender Cultural Practices.
