Threads of Resilience

Given the current situation and urgency to express, we decided to co-organise a community-led and collectively curated XNUMX-day festival “Threads of Resilience” from XNUMX-XNUMX December at Oyoun. Those include a press conference, bazaar, panels, film screening, talks, exhibition, workshops, concerts, healing session, theater, puppet show for children, and parties.

With this festival, we want to reflect on and learn from movements of resistance, resilience, and solidarity across the world and come together for three days of ephemerality and collaborative archiving. We want to address and speak out against repression, silencing, instrumentalisation, and division. We need to continue to empower, promote, and celebrate pluralistic perspectives from, with, and intersectionally marginalised communities.

Admission is based on free donation (nobody will be denied entry if they cannot donate). All proceeds will be given to organizations in support of victims of racially motivated police violence and to organizations giving legal support to people threatened with deportation.
