A group of us, organisers in Berlin (Germany) are planning a three-day CuTie.BIPoC festival by and for QTIBIPOC (Queer_Trans*_Inter*_Black_Indigenous_and_People_of_Color) during 20-22 of July 2018.
This is the 4th edition of the groundbreaking focused event that has previously occurred 2 times in Berlin and one time in Copenhagen, building on the work of connected coalition projects that
focus on self-organising platforms for marginalised groups.
We wish to strengthen the growing QTIBIPoC communities around Europe (and outside it) by coming together, sharing resources and creating a space for people to address issues that affect us and
We will be offering 3 days of workshops, screenings, performances and discussions as well as spaces to connect.
We see our community as extremely necessary in a time of rising fascism, when the exploitation of workers is increasingly racialized, when racism seems to be default, when hetero- and cissexism plague many of our community members on a daily basis, when borders are closing and the EU is increasingly keeping our friends, families and loved ones out and when the intersection of different oppressions sometimes makes building a community the only survival strategy available.
To make this festival possible we need funding for:
Material costs for workshops
Technical equipment fees
