Background
We are “together, resisting, supporting and healing” says the IDAHOBIT 2021 committee. In this spirit, the webinar will explore the theme of healing after harm aimed at LGBTQIA+ people and their allies. What has helped people to recover when they have been subjected to, witnessed, or are affected by a hate crime or an act of violence? Is there a role for the arts and creative expression to process these hurts and to find a positive and transformative outlet? How can community support restore hope, humanity, and dignity? What are the bonds of solidarity that rebuild trust and inspire activism? Healing from hurt is a journey and by no means is a straightforward process, but the cycle of pain must be interrupted. We hope this webinar will continue that conversation.

To begin the conversation, we’d like to invite speakers and participants to share a form of artwork- which can be an excerpt from a book, a poem, a painting, or any other visual or literary artwork- that deeply resonates with them and reflect on the meaning of this artwork. We hope to create a space for reflections on hate crime, violence, and solidarity during times of difficulty for LGBTQIA+ communities in Africa, and beyond.
