Wir weisen darauf hin, dass Geschlecht gesellschaftlich konstruiert ist.
The Feminist Weekender is a virtual mini festival, which provides information and empowerment for your weekend. „Genderbased Violence“, „Body Empowerment“ and „Technical Skillsharing“ are the three different areas we want to focus on during these days. We would like the Feminist Weekender to be an opportunity for you to get in touch with exciting topics in both a theoretical and also practical way.
Many of us were personally affected and experienced violence themselves or people within our social environment experienced were affected by it. We want to point out different perspectives on how to recognize and become aware of gender-based violence and stand up against it. We will talk about the legal approach and about concepts of community accountability.
Bodies of women, lesbian, inter, non-binary and trans and in particular Black Indigineous People of Color are still marginalised. We will introduce you to different people and their individual, personal stories and ways on how to break up with marginalisation in a cinematic form.
Technical skill sharing
Especially technical skills and knowledge are usually connected to cis-males primarily. Therefore also in supposedly power critical spaces, the roles are already fixed beforehand. We want to break up this role distribution and offer workshops for you to learn, improve and acquire technical skills.
Originally our plan for this year was to organize a small festival, which connects theoretical inputs with practical step of party and event organization. Besides we wanted to use the opportunity to connect and network with other FLINT*s, to design a concept for a queer feminist festival organised only by FLINT*s in 2021. Unfortunately the pandemic has crossed our plans. But we did not want to say goodbye completely to our idea. Therefore we decided to realize our vision in a shortened online version.
As a group out of women and lesbian we got together in 2015 to organize feminist event parties and with the aim to both question and break up patriarchal role structures. With the possibilities of skillsharing we want to acquire cis male dominated task areas and create a space for us to try things out. Since last year our focus shifted more towards the sharing of feminist content such as organizing workshops and lectures. You can read more here.
