INQUEERSECTIONS - Exploring queer activism across different contexts (14-16 February 2014, Utrecht, NL)

Location

Utrecht
Netherlands

This three-day festival invites to explore different queer activist struggles and strategies, and to think about what kind of alliances can be built around them. The festival is based on an idea that queer struggles and experiences always have to be seen not only as related to sexuality, oppression based on sexual orientation and gender, but also to other categories, such as race, class, ethnic background etc. that affect queer lives. In their own turn, these categories mark the lives of people that do not necessarily identify as or affiliate with the notion of queerness.

Image: 

Anarcha-feminist. Queer-punk. Anti-sexist. Anti-homophobic.
English:
This year again at the 30 of April the Noc Walpurgii Festival will take place in Berlin/Germany at Köpi Squat. Our aim is to support the struggle against sexism and homophobia and the promotion of the
presence of queers and females within the underground hc punk scene. The Noc Walpurgii festival started in 1996 in Warsaw, Poland, and is organized every two years since then. Besides having bands
performing, we would like to have this year also a wider non-musical program with performances, workshops, meetings, talks, artprojects. It´s important to us, that the projects fit into the festival
topic, that they are noncommercial and follow a diy-ethic. In order to write us, please use the contact-page on the website.

CALL: Invitation for Participation – D.I.Y. (queer-)feminist festival (Vienna, June 6-9, 2013)

Dear all!
We would like to invite you to participate in our self-organized D.I.Y. queer*_feminist super cool festival of awesomeness against Western bias :-) The idea to organize a queer_feminist festival originated among a small group of migrants* from this imaginary place called (South)Eastern Europe, looking for a space where they could engage in a critique of the hegemony of Western queer_feminist concepts and focus on self-representation, empowerment and networking. Since then, people from many different contexts and backgrounds agreed to work together to organize the festival. Our mutual goal is to bring together activists, artists, performers and (other) interested people from various feminist and LGBTIAQQ**- spaces and regions out of (South)Eastern contexts. Literally, we want to create a space for debating and examining representations, differences and imbedded power-relations.

Was wir tun
Aktionsformen
Das Lady*fest wird als theoretische politische Intervention oder theoretischer Aktivismus verstanden. Dazu gehören symbolische Guerillastrategien und die Irritation von üblichen Sehgewohnheiten.
Ziel ist es, Grenzen zu überschreiten und „Normalität“ in Frage zu stellen, um eine Vervielfältigung der Zweigeschlechtlichkeit zu erreichen.
Lady*fest bedeutet in diesem Kontext kultureller Widerspruch.
