Attention! Due to the expected curfew, as announced by the Dutch government on 20 January, this event has been rescheduled from the 9th of February to 16 February from 20:00 till 20:45 (CET time).
On 16 February 2020, D66 International is hosting a 1-hour discussion session about diversity, inclusivity and LGBTIQ+ rights. Together with Hadi Damien and Alexander Hammelburg, we will reflect on LGTBIQ+ rights in Lebanon and on the role art can play in delivering a political message. This event is a follow-up on previous interviews we conducted with ‘artivists’ from Europe and the MENA-region. Check out the short movie here.
At the end of this session, there will be a Q&A with Hadi Damien which is publicly accessible. Do you want to ask a question to Hadi Damien yourself? Sign up at the form below!
