Refugee Women* Meeting

[Deutsch]

Dear refugee women*,
Dear allies,
from now on, we would like to invite you to a regular. Over the last couple of weeks, we met and got to now each other. We had fun together, we danced and ate cake. We listened to each other. We’d like to offer you, the refugees, a space where you can talk and organise yourselves. We’d like to know what you need. We’d like to support you. Let’s meet every 1st and 3rd Wednesday. We meet at 6pm. We meet at the kosmotique, Martin-Luther-Straße 13. You can take the tram number 6, 11 and 13, Stop ‘Bautzner / Rothenburger Straße’ It’s only a small walk from there. Simply walk in the direction of ‘Bühlau’ (number 11 is going that way) and turn into the first street on the left. You can find the kosmotique after around 50metres on the left. We speak English, Spanish, Portuguese, Hebrew, French and German. During the last meetings, there was always one person who could translate from Tigrinya into German or English. There where also women who spoke Arabic. This was of great help. But if we don’t share any language, we still have hands and feet to talk. Feel free to invite your friends. Bring your children if you want.

Workshop Announcement:

Black Feminism and critical whiteness in Germany
First the workshop will have a short introduction on the history of the Afro-German movement and especially on the development of a Black Feminism in Germany since the 80ies. The focus is set on the leading role of women in the afro-german movement as well as transatlantic influences, especially in the shape of poet and activist Audre Lorde.
In the second part we want to consider the question what these developments and impulses (could) mean for white german women and men. What does it mean being white in Germany? Which consequences result from the critical reflexion of one’s own whiteness? Based on different materials (pictures, excerpts, etc.) we will discuss these as well as futher questions on the role of the black diaspora in Germany, on the connections of feminism and racism, and the meaning of racism and racial structures in the german culture and society.
