Center of Attention – or CoA – is Copenhagen 2021’s commitment to young LGBTI+ people. Situated in the more than 50-year-old institution Huset, CoA will draw on the homeyness that already exists here. It should feel as if you are at in a place where – even if you don’t – you can take your shoes off.
During the entire event there will be house parents present, not connected to any programming or stage but there to be ready to talk, listen and provide support to the young people present. The house will mimic a ‘højskole’-feel, where routines, togetherness and homeyness is at the center. Here, the volunteers are not much older than the guests.
The outdoor area at Vandkunsten will provide space for self-expression, recognition and celebration of identities. There will be a DJ-set up, the possibility to lounge and hang out, have some food and something to drink. This will be a space for building community, and for making badges and signs for the WorldPride Parade and much more. CoA is alcohol and smoke free.
