Natolin (Warsaw) Campus

The College of Europe in Natolin had the pleasure to host, between 15-21 March 2021, the student-led LGBTQ+ Week, which featured many activities aimed at raising awareness on LGBTQ+ issues, identities and culture in a learning and joyful atmosphere.

Our Natolin students have worked over several months to deliver a varied programme. LGBTQ+ issues were 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 took place during the LGBTQ+ Week:
