Open Art – increasing an awareness of LGBT rights and empowering the LGBT community

We will continue to encourage and build the capacity of Moscow LGBT activists to use culture as an LGBT awareness raising tool and as a means to empower the LGBT community in Moscow. To achieve this we will facilitate and deepen cooperation and exchanges of experience between Russian and Swedish activists/experts working in similar fields. With our local partner we will again organize the LGBT ArtFest in Moscow – OpenArt – and use last year’s experiences  to improve the event.
