Workshop: About bullying through art
12. January 2019 od 09:00–13. January 2019 od 17:00
Have you ever experienced peer violence based on your sexual orientation and/or gender identity? Perhaps you still experience peer violence at school or mobbing in the workplace? Are you the target of hateful comments online? Do you want to talk about these experiences in a safe space through creative approaches? Would you like to reach out other LGBTIQ + young people who are in a similar position, by sharing their experiences? Do you want to actively come out against violence?
Since 2015 Pride Parade Association has been addressing peer violence and violence online through the project Culture of Humiliation. Among other things, we are conducting workshops to raise awareness about the negative consequences of bullying and cyberbullying in schools and youth centres; we organize exhibitions and storytelling about peer violence experiences; we have also published an informative booklet with recommendations for teachers and bystanders… For more on what we’ve been doing, go to www.cultureofhumiliation.org.
In 2019 we will continue to work for all of you who still experience peer violence. We invite you to join us in the project Overcoming the Culture Of Humiliation. Join the creative workshops that will enable you to “talk” about your experiences through creativity and art, and reach out other young LGBTIQ + people who are in a similar situation. We want to create a space with you where we can safely talk about experiencing violence and find creative ways to talk about this topic or to talk about it and present it to the general public.
We invite everyone who:
– identifies as LGBTIQ +,
– has or has had experience with bullying and/or cyberbullying,
– is ready to talk about it or to express it through creative ways,
– can attend the initial workshops on 12 and 13 January in Ljubljana,
– is ready for longer cooperation: 6 shorter workshops between January and June 2019 (once a month).
