STICHTING ROZE MAANDAG
Roze Maandag, which translates to Pink Monday, is the LGTBI event of the south. The event takes place yearly during the Tilburg Fair. Next year, Tilburg’s city centre will turn pink for the 30th time with the promise of an incredible party. However, Stichting Roze Maandag (Pink Monday’s Foundation) is committed to linking a serious message to this party: acceptance of people’s diversity needs to happen every day of the year, not just during Roze Maandag. Thus, the Pink Monday Foundation works in a playful yet critical way to promote its message of acceptance and diversity – every day of the year.
“During Roze Maandag everyone can be themselves, but that should be possible all year round”
Identity & Human rights Excursion 3: Community Media Centre
Identity is what makes someone unique. You experience your identity through, among other things, origin, gender, sexual orientation, religion and political affiliation. Human rights play an important role in promoting and protecting both and individuals identity and personality, as well as group identities. As for instance the right to privacy and the right to freedom of expression do so.
In the morning program you will discuss how identity and clothing are intertwined with representatives of the globally operating organisations Capsters (the original sport hijab), Fashionclash (fashion and design) and Tilburg Cowboys (Human Rights Tattoo). In the afternoon session the central theme is the right to freedom of expression. You will be immersed in the world of (social) media and citizen journalism by the founders of the ‘Community Media Centre Omroep Tilburg’ and Roze Maandag – one of the largest LGTB events in the Netherlands.
