The College of Europe in Natolin has the pleasure to announce that on 15-21 March 2021, Natolin and Bruges students will participate in the LGBTQ+ Week at Natolin, which will feature many activities aimed at raising awareness on LGBTQ+ issues, identities and culture in a learning and joyful atmosphere.

Our Natolin students have worked hard these months to deliver a varied programme. LGBTQ+ issues will be tackled through an interdisciplinary approach, going from cultural-oriented initiatives, such as an artistic exhibition depicting LGBTQ+ art and activism, to more academic-oriented activities, such as a workshop on the demystification of the language of gender and queerness.

Please find below an overview of the two online lectures that will take place next week while the full programme of the LGBTQ+ Week is available on the right:
