LGBT Asylum, Freemuse and Union present Asylum, Art and Action

LGBT Asylum, Freemuse and cultural house Union will hold an event, Asylum, Art and Action, during Copenhagen 2021 on 17 August 2021 at 17:30 – 23:00 CEST.

The cultural event Asylum, Art and Action is a celebration of LGBTI+ refugees. The event is hosted and curated by the Danish refugee organisation LGBT Asylum and Freemuse in collaboration with the renowned cultural house Union in Nørrebro, the creative and intercultural heart of Copenhagen and Copenhagen 2021.

The Tuesday, 17 August evening program offers a diverse and engaging artistic programme, featuring both local and international artists and speakers aimed at the visibility of LGBTI+ refugees. The central focus is to build community and support for LGBTI asylum seekers and refugees and strongly underline their right to free expression in a political setting where it is all too often denied and overlooked.

With a focus on cultural hybridity, the event will invite guests to explore the evening’s theme as an essential element in a living, breathing Copenhagen and to gain both international and local insights through engaging experiences in the field between culture and knowledge.
