Network gathering for experience exchange among queers in Sápmi
Through the project, a network gathering for experience exchange and organizational development among queers in Sápmi will be organised. The goal is to strengthen the queer Sami organization and, in that way, creating more and better meeting places for the whole of Sápmi. In the long run, more meeting places and a stronger queer Sami organization will contribute to more openness and knowledge, both among queer Sami, but also among the general population.
The network gathering will gather participants from the Finnish, Swedish and Norwegian sides. Such a collection has two main purposes
- Gather queer communities across Sápmi, to exchange experiences and talk about the way forward for the queer Sámi organization, as well as to plan future meeting places
- Organizational development through getting to know the organizational processes from the various parts of Sápmi and skills development in practical-organizational work
