The current project is aimed at addressing some of the challenges posed by the Covid-19 pandemic through organizing an activist Academy for the members of two of our self-support groups: QueerFemme and BraveLab, on being activists during the Covid-19 pandemic. The main goal of the Academy is to multiply the number of people who are motivated to come up with new ways of engaging LGBTI youth and queer women during the pandemic.
– The Academy will gather 10-15 people and within three days they will be trained in general activist skills and knowledge, with the focus on being activists during the pandemic.
– After the Academy, the trainees will develop their own projects, being supported by Bilitis’ experienced activists.
Duration: 6 months (16 September 2020 – 16 March 2021)
The project is funded by The Global Resilience Fund for Girls and Young Women.
