Educate, sensitize, create!

Are you full of ideas that you would like to share? Are you an expert of a field that affect a lot of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) people as well? Do you have questions to which you wan to find answers together? By playing, creating, talking? If yes, we believe you should take an active part in the Budapest Pride Festival!

Just like in previous festivals, rich, diverse workshops and community events will be an integral part of the festival in 2015 as well. This year workshops will be held July 6-10, from Monday to Friday, at two Budapest venues.

Hand in a proposal, so that topics important to YOU can make it to the program of the festival!

Your proposal (max.1 page) should include the folllowing:

  • the topic of the workshop, the structure and goals of the
  • talk/forum/discussion
  • a short description of the organizers/invited speakers
  • duration of the workshop (1–3 hours)
  • technical requirements (e.g. projector, flip chart stands)
  • language of the workshop
  • travel costs / accommodation support if needed

This year the motto of the festival is “Budapest Pride: Empowered by 20 years!” By this we would like to call attention to the power that lies within groups that experience oppression, such as the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer communities. The full program of the festival, including the workshops will focus on this message. For further details, click here. Please take this into consideration when working on your proposals.

According to our plans, about 15 workshops will be organized during the festival. Our aim is to provide an open, interactive, inclusive atmosphere to discuss important topics together.

Send your proposals to workshop@budapestpride.hu by May 22th, 2015, and we will give you feedback within a week!

IMPORTANT!
Applicants whose proposals are chosen will be invited to a personal meeting, to discuss the proposal and any other questions related to the workshop, before we set up the final program.
