The project focuses on human rights and the struggle for equality, seeking to present a contemporary reading of Balkan traditions in the context of global society and our digitalised reality.
An exhibition (4 – 16 July at SKLAD), a public discussion (on 16 July at SKLAD) and a Balkan Pride musical event (on 16 July at 9pm at thEATre at 38 Alexander I Str.) will present photos, artefacts and audiovisual installations from pride parades in big Balkan cities, including Sofia.
The project challenges certain stereotypes, but also aims at a dialogue between different social, age and ethnic groups in order to improve urban culture and expand public horizons. Organisers of pride parades in Thessaloniki, Belgrade and Bucharest will also take part.
The project is a production of the GLAS Foundation.
