INTRODUCTION NIGHT WOMEN*TONGUE-Belgium
This event invites all humans to be with the question, “what is feminine activism”?
We are a bunch of activist women from Brussels, israelPalestine engaging in Extinction Rebellion, the 8 March movement, women* circles, citizen initiatives like Empowering Stories and more.
We have a special guest, Lotan Sapir, with us to inspire us with her walk of feminine activism in Israel-Palestine. As well as Yael Deckelbaum joing online who walks and sings for Women* Marches throughout the world.
We invite you to a circle conversation around what “activism” is for you today and how might it be changing?
This is an open night for all + an introduction night for the 3 day ‘Women* Share your voice! – creative expression retreat’, which will occur the following weekend Women*Tongue Belgium | The Retreat: https://www.facebook.com/events/313967062614794/
TIMING FOR THE EVENING
Doors open from 18h00
From 18h30 we invite you to get into the topic through little movement and image theatre interventions.
At 19h00 we will start our collective conversation to explore what feminine activism means to all of us present. This will include a sharing by Yael Deckelbaum from Israel-Palestine about her experiences, as well as moments of exchange in small groups with creative invitations.
After 21h00 there will be space for enjoying each other’s company with drinks and music for another hour or so.
Women*Tongue is an ongoing platform which wishes to support and empower women* voices to be heard through diverse creative means. This platform explores different ways how feminine activism might look like and pave way for women* to act upon what they want to see possible for the future of our world.
