Threads of Resilience | Workshops | Resistance Bazaar
16.Dezember 2023 14:00 - 18:00
Organised by Diaspora Rising Collective
As part of the Resistance Bazaar, there will be two workshops:
Endurance Workshop led by Zïada | R4 | 14:00-16:00 | For BPoC activists and organisers
In this workshop, we hold space for questions that particularly organisers and activists of the global majority don’t get to ask themselves and check-in often enough (if at all): what do I bring to the movement? What am I driven and motivated by? Which ecosystems nurture and are needed to resources me? How to avoid activists burn out by myself and peers? How can we bear witness to the unbearable?
This workshop won’t answer all the questions, but it brings us and the wealth of wisdom and experience together - the ones that have come before us and ourselves - in order to build endurance for the long term vision of dismantling imperialism and the various intersecting forms of oppressions. It’s a marathon and not a sprint.
Who is this is for: BPoC activists and organisers, tell your activist/organiser friends that may need this!
What to bring: Notebook, water and whatever you need to settle for 2 hours
Please sign up until Friday, 14. December 6pm.
Bodywork & Healing Techniques by Workshop by AnaH | R3 |16:30-18:00 | open to all
In terrible times many people experience either high levels of nervousness/not being able to calm down at all / lack of sleep or a kind of inner numbness. Pain of all kinds increases. This mini seminar is about exchanging what helps and practicing simple techniques that are effective in order to better cope with all of these symptoms and to be better able to be present for each other and remain able to act together. Trauma therapist Anna Hoffmann is convinced that trauma is always linked to systemic injustice and that it usually makes sense to approach it collectively. Open to everyone / max 35 participants / without registration. Once we have started the workshop it is no longer possible to join.
Registration: Endurance Workshop: please register here.
Bodywork & Healing Techniques: No registration for the bodywork workshop needed, fist come, first served
Room: R3 (Bodywork & Healing Techniques) and R4 (Endurance Workshop)
Zïada (she/they) is a community organiser, sound artist, dream weaver and visionary.
It took her several burn outs until she decided to learn more on how to build sustainable, long term commitments for collective liberation and building more just, generative and creative futures.
She trained in the field of “Regenerative Activism” (ULEX), Organising for Power (Rosa Luxemburg Stiftung) and “Transformation Design” (Transformationsakademie), but mostly gathered practical knowledge from grassroots and front line organising.
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.
Oyoun is constantly working to make access to all events offered in the building as barrier-free as possible. For individual information on accessibility, please send us an email to access(at)oyoun.de. We will get back to you as soon as possible. More info on this topic here.
At Oyoun there is no place for sexism, queerphobia, transphobia, any form of racism or discrimination such as anti-Black, anti-Muslim racism or antisemitism. The same applies to any kind of violent, aggressive or assaultive behaviour. Oyoun provides an open forum for dialogue and a place where we support and stand up for each other.
