Stichting Prisma Groep
Stichting Prisma Groep is committed to the bicultural LGBTQI+ communities in The Netherlands. We also offer support and assistance to LGBTQI+ refugees and are both professionals and experts in this field. Stichting Prisma Groep has various projects, such as empowerment meetings with guest speakers and psychosocial conversations. We want to make society safer for bicultural LGBTQI+, both nationally and internationally, and to promote emancipation and acceptance. The emancipation of LGBTQI+ is ultimately about the emancipation of all people. We do open and closed meetings for our target groups or for anyone who is interested. We are happy to share our knowledge through information, training, and meetings. We use our knowledge and experience to make target groups and others more sensitive to various topics related to bicultural LGBTQI+ communities in The Netherlands.

Interactive lecture about bicultural LGBTQI+ communities in The Netherlands- October 4th, 16:00 - 18:00, REC A2.12
This lecture is open to both UvA students and staff. Bicultural LGBTQI+ community is becoming increasingly more visible in society. However, many organizations and care providers know little or even nothing about these beautiful and complex target groups. Aid workers who do not belong to the LGBTQI+ community themselves often do not have the experience necessary to provide help to these specific groups. Bicultural LGBTQI+ often belong to a double or even triple minority group, with all the consequences that entails. Stichting Prisma Groep provides several information sessions and workshops that are related to the development of different intercultural competences for students. The information session is also informative for other employees at the university, such as teachers (WP) and support staff (OBP). The lecture will be offered in English.

Our Bodies Our Voice
Stichting Our Bodies Our Voice is co-sponsored by the CDO Team to deliver a series of workshops and trainings to staff, student and student & study associations. Through our workshops, we give participants knowledge on what they can do to support survivors and help dismantle the stigma around sexual violence. We also create a safe space for intimate discussions about participants’ attitudes towards sex, boundaries and consent.
Our workshops focus on:
- developing communication skills concerning boundaries and consent;
- creating awareness of support systems and evolving into a survivor-centric and stigma free community;
- working on positive masculinity by engaging men in open, honest conversations about their roles in university communities;
- bystander intervention, which is focused on developing participants’ skills in intervening in challenging situations.
Boundaries, Communication, & Consent Workshop - October 4th, 15:00 - 17:00, REC A2.13
This workshop aims to help students gain a better understanding of their own personal boundaries and how to communicate them in social situations. Topics that are addressed include: the diversity of experiences people have, the ways in which our unique personal identities and situations shape our boundaries, and how we understand those of others. The workshop will be offered in English. Please register yourself via Google docs
Allyship Workshop - October 6th, 17:30 - 19:30, REC A2.15
Allyship is one of the most important approaches you can take to contribute to better campuses, workplaces and communities. This workshop explores some complex situations that are relevant to university life and forms the core introductory module for students seeking to establish inclusive cultures. The workshop will be offered in English.
