cafém – getting to know feminism

[German]

The cafém on April 19th gives you the opportunity to take part in a self-defence training.
For this purpose, we invited Kathrin Bein, a professional trainer (WenDo Dresden, FMGZ Medea e.V.).

Topics of the training include awareness and body language, simple self-defence techniques, specific assertiveness exercises, reenacting scenarios and relaxation strategies; the aim is to reflect on and broaden one’s own opportunities of action.

Participation is free of charge,
but we‘d ask you to register beforehand – simply drop us an e-mail:
cafemdresden@riseup.net
Training is for girls (16+)/women/lesbians/trans.
Please bring comfortable clothes, sports shoes and (if possible) a roll mat.

Apart from the training, our monthly café takes place. You can drop in and visit us at the kosmotique between 2pm and 8pm. As usual, we’ll have a small brunch and you’re heartily invited to bring some food. Moreover,
there’ll be a small stall with zines, books and information, a children’s play corner and – most importantly – great people to hang out with.

cafém: 2-8pm @kosmotique // Martin-Luther-Str. 13 // Dresden
Self-defence training (girls/women/lesbian/trans): 3-7 pm

cafém in March

Since the cafém in February didn‘t really take place as planned, we‘re showing the then already advertised movie at the 18th cafém on 15/03/15.

The movie is an intimate glimpse into the world of two jewish friends who live together in Berlin. Having survived the Holocaust and then stayed in Germany after the war, it is the food they cook together that they remember their childhoods, maintain a bond to each other and answer questions of heritage, memory and identity. As the film follows them through their daily lives, a portrait emerges of two women with a light sense of humor, vivid stories, and a deep fondness for good food. Created by Oma’s granddaughter Alexa, the film captures their ongoing struggle to retain a part of their past while remaining very much engaged in the present.

We want to warn in advance, that the movie has some fleshy scenes that might be too much for some people. But don’t be afraid, there wont be meat in the cafèm, instead we will have a delicious vegan buffet as always. You are welcome to bring some good stuff.
We‘re looking forward to spending a relaxed afternoon watching this movie with you.

There will also be a discussion about ‚religion and feminism‘ from 3pm. At this first meeting, we especially want to talk about fundamentalism and anti-feminism. A short talk has been prepared and we warmly invite you to join the discussion.

cafém – getting to know feminism

The next cafém will happen at the 26th October 2014.

Between 2 and 8 PM there will be the possibility to design the kosmotique by yourself. There is also room for debating, playing games, eating and drinking, reading books together and planning your future activities.

Feel welcome!

Starting at 5 PM we will watch „Laurence Anyways“:

The movie highlights ten years in the life of a literature teacher named Laurence who transforms himself into a woman after years of concealing his feelings. Her tremulous relationship with her family is further complicated by revealing herself to them while she struggles to find comfort with her significant other Frédérique. Though others may not initially accept or understand Laurence in her true form, those who knew her before her transformation still know her as Laurence, anyways.
