NEW PROJECT: Rainbow Karavane

NEW PROJECT: Rainbow Karavane

The Rainbow Karavane is a series of LGBTQI+ themed days/evenings organised as part of the PrideFestival. Come and meet with LGBTQI+ associations! These events will be accompanied by a socio-cultural event. Workshops, concerts, exhibitions, films, debates… the possibilities are endless!

The caravan symbolizes the movement of LGBTQI+ associations in the different municipalities of Brussels. There won’t be a real caravan, but instead there will be a lot of nice activities!

Each “Karavane” will be organised in collaboration with a Brussels local authority. In 2020, the Rainbow Karavane will take place in 5 different municipalities: Anderlecht, Saint Gilles, Uccle, Watermael-Boitsforts and Ixelles.

An event will be composed of two parts:

– a meeting between the public and LGBTQI+ associations / collectives in Brussels

– a socio-cultural activity with an LGBTQI+ theme.


COVID19 Update

The Rainbow Karavane should have taken place in May 2020, at the same time as the PrideFestival. Due to the pandemic, we moved the PrideFestival to September 2020. However, for logistical reasons, the Rainbow Karavane will take place in December 2020. It will therefore be an extension of the PrideFestival!


Objectives pursued by the project :

The majority of LGBTQI+ activities are still too concentrated in the city centre of Brussels, especially around the coal market street. The Rainbow Karavane will give visibility to the work of LGBTQI+ associations in Brussels, but also to LGBTQI+ culture. This outside the city centre!

Here is a list of the objectives of the project:

– Organise LGBTQI+ activities outside the city centre of Brussels

– Visibility of the work of LGBTQI+ associations in Brussels

– Visibility of queer talent in Brussels

– Raising public awareness on LGBTQI+ issues

– Creating links between different worlds, especially between local residents and LGBTQI+ people

– Offering safe spaces to think and build together a fairer society.
