13:30–15:00 Art and Culture to Raise Awareness of LGBTI+ Rights in Repressive Countries
In tandem with a worsening human rights situation, several countries in the Eurasia region have embarked on a crack-down on LGBTI+ rights and little progress can be witnessed in the rights’ protection of LGBTI+ people in the Balkans. The strengthening of the protection of “traditional values” and spreading of extreme right-wing tendencies, also reinforced by governments, have further hardened the situation for the LGBTI+ community and its defenders. In Russia, the law banning propaganda of “non-traditional sexual relations” is one example of this trend that has led to discussion of similar laws in other Eurasian and European countries. In an increasingly repressive environment, culture and art has still served as one way to discuss and raise topics of LGBTI+ rights and to empower the LGBTI+ community.

How can art serve as a tool to raise LGBTI+ right issues and empower the LGBTI+ community when the space is narrowing down? What is possible in an increasingly repressive environment and what are the threats?

Meet human rights defenders and artists from Russia, Belarus, Albania and Kosovo when they share their experiences working with culture and art to raise awareness of LGBTI+ rights in their respective countries.

In an increasingly repressive environment, culture and art has still served as one way to discuss and raise topics of LGBTI+ rights and to empower the LGBTI+ community.

In Russia, Queerfest celebrated its 10th anniversary last year – an international cultural festival that raises topics of LGBTI+ issues – and Open Art in Moscow celebrated its second year with a similar focus. In Belarus, activities, such as the art project Queer Calendar has served as a mean to preserve the LGBTI+ community’s memories and express themselves. In Albania and Kosovo, photo and art have been used as a platform for discussions and empowerment during Pride events, as the exhibition “Empty closets” that shared stories and experiences from the LGBT+ community in Albania.

How can art serve as a tool to discuss LGBTI+ rights and empower the LGBTI+ community when the space is narrowing down? What is possible in an increasingly repressive environment and what are the threats and limits? How can we be better to share our experiences with each other?
Meet human rights defenders and artists working for LGBTI+ rights from Russia, Belarus, Albania, Kosovo when they share their experiences working with culture and art to raise awareness of LGBTI+ rights in their respective countries.
