Transformative Community Care for QTI*BIWOC

Transformative Community Care event with Jessica Korp and Hà Tố Trinh Nguyễn

In cooperation with Jessica Korp and Hà Tố Trinh Nguyễn we are happy to invite all Black, Indigenous and femmes of Color to our second community healing session – Transformative Community Care.

This past year (and the present) has been hard on our community on so many levels. How can we process this? How can we heal from it? And how does community healing look like in practice?

In our Transformative Community Care circle, we are going to create a safer space where we can listen and see each other and meditate together as a part of collective healing process. Our referees will guide us to make the first step into the right direction, so we can begin to be more balanced and in harmony with ourselves and our community.

When: 31.03.2021, 6- 7.30 pm
Location: Google Meet
Languages: German but English is also possible

Important: Healing in the context of this event is, of course, not to be understood as a classic therapy session. We are offering a space for collective healing but this is not a substitute for professional therapy.

Jessica Korp

Jessica Krop is a researcher, curator and organizer and co-founder of “Femme* Grounding” together with Dumama a.k.a Guru and Fairooz.
Femme* Grounding is a space to silence the noise all around us and focus on what really matters: upliftment and empowerment in parallel dimensions of existence. In our sessions we focus on making space for speculative fabulation for any by femmes* only. On a weekly basis we convene to speak our hearts and minds and realign with our purpose and mission and change the game, beyond archaic identity categories or soft skills.

BIWOC* Rising is the first intersectional co-working space & social club in Berlin and Germany. This safer space is exclusively for women, trans, inter and non-binary people who identify as Black, indigenous or of Colour! Through training programs, empowerment workshops, and a work-desk in the heart of Berlin-Kreuzberg, BIWOC* Rising is creating a new working culture – a working culture that transcends the white, homogenous, capitalist one that has been a core driver of gentrification and marginalization in Berlin.
