The event takes place this coming June 20th, from 10am to 17pm, at the State Institute of Education, in the center of Florianópolis.

Its main objective is to make LGBTQIAP+ memory spaces visible in the city, in addition to encouraging the participation of LGBTQIAP+ people in open access collaborative platforms. 

The program consists of a basic workshop on photography techniques, and then a guided walk through the center of Florianópolis, in which part of the history of the city's diversity will be explored.

During this journey, participants will be able to take photos and record these historical moments, which will be reused in the free multimedia repository Wikimedia Commons, thus promoting easy access to these records.
