Safety in Public Spaces Story Circle (Harare)

Event date: February 2, 2024

Join us for an empowering and immersive experience as we utilize the power of storytelling in our project focused on violence, safety, and security experienced by LGBTQIA girls in Zimbabwe. Story circles are participatory sessions where individuals gather to share personal narratives within specific thematic areas. These circles provide a safe and confidential space for LGBTQIA girls to explore and discuss their experiences of violence, intersectionality of identities, and strategies of resistance. Through these storytelling sessions, we aim to shed light on the different facets of violence faced by LGBTQIA girls, raise awareness, and collectively work towards creating safer environments. Join us in these transformative story circles and be a part of building resistance and strategies for the safety and security of LGBTQIA girls in Zimbabwe.

This story circle aims to understand the violence faced by LGBTQIA girls in public spaces in Zimbabwe. Participants will share narratives about their encounters with violence, discuss strategies for navigating safety, and explore ways to challenge and resist such violence collectively.
