What was on? (from the past – prior to 28th of May)
*Anarcha-Feminist Freeschool & Organising and Chill Out Space @ The Forest Cafe, Upstairs in the Hall 1pm – 5pm*
Come and join us for an afternoon of projections, short film, discussion, arts and crafts, and perhaps most importantly, tea and cake! The freeschool will be a space to meet other people who intend to go on the Reclaim the Night march (info below) make last minute banners, placards, and come up with plans together. We want the space to be open and creative, so that we can build up ideas and enthusiasm for the march in the evening – Please bring materials, energy and things to share!
*Reclaim the Night March @ Usher Hall to Bristo Square, gathering from 7:30pm*
We will gather at usher hall on Lothian road at 7:30pm to begin marching at 8:00pm. The march will be open to feminists of any gender, however there will be a self-identified women’s only space at the front of the march for those who wish to march in that space. The march will culminate in Bristo square at 10:00pm.
*After-march Gig @ Teviot from 10:00pm – 3:00am*
Come and celebrate with us at the post-march gig and hear live music from Scragfight, Hannah Werdmuller and Gudrun Hirt followed by dancin’ to some fine feminist tunes. This will take place in Teviot Dining Room, Teviot row House, Bristo Square from 10:00pm till 3:00am.
All events are free and open to folk of any gender. These events are being organised by three feminist groups who have decided to work together: Edinburgh Anarcha-Feminists, Ladyfest Edinburgh, and a small group of people from Edinburgh University who are organising under the Reclaim the Night banner.
