Smoqua 2017

Smoqua is a three-day regional festival which takes place in Rijeka from 12th to 14th of October 2017, with participants from Croatia, Slovenia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia, Kosovo, Macedonia and Montenegro. This is the first time that this festival is organised and we hope it will continue to exist and grow during the years that follow.
Overall objective of the festival is introducing queer and feminist culture to the public through artistic content (exhibition, performances), audio-visual concepts (drag show, concert of the feminist band, short film screenings etc.), workshops, panel discussions, and info booths of the CSOs and initiatives established for protection and promotion of women's rights and rights of the LGBTIQ persons. Visitors also have the opportunity to learn about history and the importance of queer and feminist culture, to develop critical awareness, to explore the cultural and social context and psychosocial dimension of this culture. The program includes cultural institutions, CSOs and individuals distinguished in queer-feminist culture from local community and from regional countries.
