As promoting queer and feminist culture is among LORI strategic goals, one of our key programs is - Queer Culture.
Since our beginnings, LORI has been working with the intention of bringing queer and feminist culture closer to the local community (primarily), in terms of both the general public - in the matter of informing the public, and LGBTIQ+ community, with the aim of empowering it.
The problem of (in)visibility and marginalisation of queer and feminist culture in Croatia, as well as the variety of cultural contents through which LORI has introduced the concepts of queer and feminism to the general public, along with collaborations we created, you can check out here.
As part of the Queer Culture programme, LORI has been organising cultural and artistic events since the early 2000s, independently and/or in cooperation with other associations, institutions and prominent artists, both from Croatia and abroad.
Some of the contents through which LORI introduces queer and feminist culture to the public are: exhibitions, theatre plays, literary evenings, film screenings, and Festival of Queer and Feminist Culture Smoqua.
