ANARCHA FEMINIST QUEER SKILL SHARE WEEKEND
From the 20th to the 22nd of January, Anarcha-Feminist Group Amsterdam is organizing a queer feminist skillshare weekend that will be hosted at the Vossiusstraat 16 squat in Amsterdam.
We will come together to share our opinions, skills and knowledge. Over the course of the weekend there will be baking, movie screenings,workshops, talks, music and more! (a detailed program will be published soon) If you would like to host a workshop or talk, feel free to get in touch with us. All ideas are welcome!
We believe that it is important to come together and educate ourselves outside of oppressive/ hierarchical power structures. Knowledge and skills should be accessible to everyone, and shared in a horizontal manner. We all have something to learn, and we all have something to share.
So often we are excluded from, not given nor learn how to take up space as
non cis-men. Queer people and people who do not identify as cis-men continue to be pushed aside when wanting to do or learn practical skills and manual labour and/or are talked over when expressing their opinions. We believe that organizing without cis-men can help us to focus our energy on sharing, building and learning and not waste as much time and energy on correcting and dealing with patriarchal behaviours around us. We think it is important to come together in order to learn and develop skills in a cis-men free space, and it is for these reasons that the event will be a cis-man free event.
We can't wait to see you all! If you have any questions pls contact us!
