HERA and EKVALIS
With united forces, the youth organizations HERA youth and Ekvalis will enrich the PloshtArt zone with a special creative corner that takes care of the safety of everyone at the D Festival. In this corner, it is certain that you will feel comfortable and completely relaxed. From a space to create art, to have informative talks or a place to stop for a moment between concerts, where everyone will be able to engage with the attractive content and learn more about their activities on sexual and reproductive health, youth activism, gender and LGBTI+ equality.
- Fanzines* allow us to do just that. We dedicate the first day of the festival to a workshop that will promote your and our common ideas, messages and works of art.
- Come to FLINTA* speed dating in the corner of #HERAmladi and Equalis and meet your future love (or best friend). We have prepared fun content for you that we hope will contribute to even more fun memories.
- Come to our doctor’s office for mind, spirit and body! The team of #HERAmladi and Equalis prepared three fun activities facilitated by our volunteers, peer educators and artists.
- *Exhibition “Queer Love, Heritage and Resistance” – The exhibition is an attempt to show the love of queer people outside the 4 walls of their homes, that is, where they are often told to keep their relationships, families, lives and identities.
- Three-day group activity – Open to all visitors throughout the festival weekend, it will be our canvas that we invite you to fill with color and colorfulness.

In Macedonian, the word “KRIK” means “scream”, or “indignation” and the inspiration behind it lies in the vision of this organization – for the voice of the youth to be heard and authorized to make changes and contributions in the frame of their society. KRIK tends to encourage a larger participation and activism of the youth, as well as to motivate them to be included in the process of creating renewed politics on a local and national level.
