Pour out your thoughts, anger, feelings, grudges, sentiments, questions, ideas, opinions and everything on that fabric.

How proudly can you walk in your thoughts? If I could wear my inside on my outside, how would that look like and what pattern would it have? What messages would be communicated by the sound of my selected colors of expression? How can we express our insides without exhausting our words?

InnerActive aims to take away the focus on long established ways of expressing our inner voices and beings, and create new ways of communicating our feelings and thoughts.

The workshop:
We will individually reach into ourselves and dig out our individual thoughts, ideas, feelings etc. Then will proceed to splitting them into oppressive and empowering, visible and invisible, spoken and unspoken, colorful and grey vocabularies. Through wearing the shirts we are communicating non-verbally our inside on the outside.

Afro Rainbow Austria (ARA)

is the first organisation established by and for African LGBTQI+ in Austria with the aim of creating a communicative and interactive platform.
Still trending is the fact that most Africans are refusing to recognize homophobia as a colonial legacy, bearing in mind that before colonialism, many traditional cultures in Africa were tolerant of different sexualities and gender relations.

Many LGBTQI+ Africans face discrimination, violence, persecution, stigma and exclusion on a daily basis from family members, employers, places of worship and the society at large. These forms of hostility tend to take a negative toll on the physical, social and mental health of the LGBTQI+ population.Discrimination and hostility of LGBTQI+ Africans are not restricted to the continent, but can also be found in and around African communities in Austria.

In order to create awareness, trigger discussion and trade homophobia for coexistence both in African communities in Austria, and in Austria as a whole, AfroRainbowAustria was born.
