About the festival

Save the dates! It’s an exciting time - SapfoFest is back on 30th July - 1st August 2021!

We know that you are already waiting. We can’t wait for it too! SapfoFest is once again calling for the queer- feminist community, friends and likeminded womxn to get TOGETHER.

There’s a lot going on in 2021. Safe space is extremely important, especially when there is so much hate and anxieties around. More important – united community, that provides safe visibility and resilience, is full of self-help resources and able to inspire and mobilise.

SapfoFest is a space where there is no fear or toxic masculinity. Respect, mutual trust and solidarity triumphs here. It’s the freedom to be(come) yourself and to find your community. SapfoFest doesn’t wait for society to change. We are STRONGER TOGETHER to make these changes here and now.

SapfoFest is an independent, non-commercial, community-initiated festival providing a much needed collaborative and grounding environment for building tents and queer-feminist community in Lithuania and beyond since 2014. Featuring critical reflection, debate and community self-care, SapfoFest seeks to mobilise and make visible queer-feminist lives in the pursuit of solidarity, emancipation and social change!
With a firm commitment of making the event widely accessible, SapfoFest has been since its beginnings an initiative without participation fees or tickets. At the same time, it is based on DIT principles that keep the event self-sufficient, without any major institutional support. Also, this year, the organisation of the festival relies on “our power” to make the festival happen. SapfoFest 2021 is supported by honest contributions (that go far beyond financial support) of its participants, friends, volunteers and supporters. We are determined to collaborate and work together which is central to the ethic of liberation and empowerment.

Everyone is invited to contribute to the development of the programme and atmosphere of the SapfoFest 2021!
