Online event

Once again we will celebrate love – but not that kind of love: capitalism stole love from us, the coronavirus stole closeness and now state based repression wants to steal our solidarity. It is up to us to reclaim love, closeness and solidarity and to redefine them on our own terms! And if we have fun whilst doing so, even better.

Red Dawns are inviting you to join us for our Anti-valentine DIY Prestige benefit: Notebook, this time in the form of an online collective writing of short sentences with the help of the surrealistic method exquisite corpse.

This year we celebrate not only love stories, from partnerships to singledom, self-love, queer relationships, non-monogamy, non-platonic friendships, asexual romantic relationships, familiy ties which are not defined by blood relations and other non-normative ways of caring for one another that are too complicated and too important to categorize. We also celebrate loving communal solidarity! We want to love, but we want it on our terms: we want care, respect, trust and solidarity between all people and ways of relating to each other; a kind of love that disrupts and challenges the hegemony of romantic love.

We invite you to pour yourself a glass of wine (or any other preferred beverage) and join us with your loved ones for a fun evening – this time online. Your contribution will go towards the realisation of the 23nd International Feminist and Queer Festival Red Dawns, which will take place between March 4th and 13th 2022!


You can apply until Saturday, 12 February via this online form

All the applicants will receive a link to the online event that will take place in Slovene and/or English and if needed in the universal all-inclusive cosmic language of love.
