15.Dezember 2023 19:30 - 21:30
Meshwar Mixtape - Palestine Edition organised by and with DJ Dumtak
Meshwar Mixtapes takes participants on a journey to Palestine, through music, stories of the songs and people who have a special connection to them. To make it accessible, the song lyrics have been translated to English to reach a wider audience. "Meshwar Mixtapes" is a listening sessions series spotlighting music from countries in the global south. Through music, we share stories regarding the songs, and the people who have a special connection to them. Serving as an introduction to the culture, music and stories of the country/region in focus.
Meshwar Mixtapes is founded and run mainly by DJ Dumtak, but also by a group of researchers, translators who are all individuals, artists, and freelancers whose work and source of income is negatively affected by the current situation in the Middle East. In order to continue the journey of Meshwar, and to support the team behind it, we would like to fundraise for the project as well in the amount of 20% of the total proceeds.

This event is part of the Threads of Resilience Festival
Given the current situation and urgency to express, we decided to co-organise a community-led and collectively curated 3-day festival “Threads of Resilience” from 14-16 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 racist police violence and to organizations giving legal support to people threatened with deportation.
