An LGBTI themed project
ABOUT THE ORGANISATION:
The “Pink Wednesday Foundation” is a Dutch NGO and organizes since 2008 yearly the Pink Wednesday, an inclusive LGBTI-day in Nijmegen (176,000 inhabitants.
Pink Wednesday is an inclusive LGBTI-day that takes place during a large non-LGBTI-event: the Four Days Marches Parties, the festivities that are celebrated during the International Four Days Marches. 45,000 people from all over the world take part in these walking marches and the Four Days Marches Parties (that last 7 days!) attract 220.000 visitors every day.

ABOUT THE PROJECT:
Does your city have a multi-day non-LGBTI-event like public street parties, Oktoberfeste or cultural festivals? And would you like to create an inclusive LGBTI-day during that event, together with us? The Dutch Pink Wednesday is looking for 4 to 5 partners in the EU who’d like to participate in the EU programme ‘Europe for citizens’ for civil society projects.
The first priority of Rainbowdays is to create awareness of the LGBTI group among:
1. the general public
2. the diversity within LGBTI-group itself, among who refugees, mentally challenged LGBTI-people, transgender people etc.
3. the history of the LGBTI-groups in the EU, the emancipation period, the current laws concerning LHBTI rights.
4. political parties and persons about the presence of the LGBTI community.
We are searching for collaboration with 4 or 5 partners to:
- Organise Rainbowdays in 4 or 5 countries, celebrating the freedom. The form of the day may vary per country.
- To exchange awareness projects created by volunteers in each country.
- To exchange (the) involved volunteers.
- Create ideas together for dissemination of the results.
- To organise trainings and share best practises
All the above will be created in co-creation with the partners.
