These events will hopefully take place monthly from now on, so stay tuned for the date of the next one!
DIY Discussions is a space to come together and meet with other feminists to share ideas and skills in a relaxed and friendly way.
The motivation behind the project is to attempt to empower each other to learn new things, with particular attention to skills which we may not have been encouraged to pursue growing up in a capitalist, patriarchal system. By learning to do things ourselves we become more self-sufficient and less dependent on this system of oppression and control. We also want to further our understanding and analysis of feminism through thoughtful, participatory discussion.
DIY Discussions takes place every two weeks (fortnightly) on Wednesdays from 7.30pm – 11.00pm
The next one will be on Wednesday 26th of October at 7.30pm. Since this will take place at someone’s house, we ask that you email us (edinburghanarchafeminist[at]noflag.org.uk) for the address.
We’ll start the evening by sharing a craft/ability/art/technique/idea/way of doing something, and then spend the second half of the evening discussing a topic from a feminist perspective.
