Bergen Ballroom is a collaborative project, organized by KODE, Carte Blanche and Mother Cassandra Meraki. The aim of the project is to build a ballroom community for the local queer minorities in Bergen and Western Norway. Their goal is to create safe spaces where LGBT+ and BIPOC youth and young adults can explore themes of gender, identity and personal expression through the different art forms of the ballroom culture and find belonging in a creative community.
