June 3: Schnelsen Refugee Camp!

Today, friday 3rd of June Schwabinggrad Ballett & Arrivati together with OpenEyesOpenHearts e.V., Superbude, Fux&Ganz-Cantina crew and  other activists and artists will go to a refugee-camp in Schnelsen to perform, talk, cook and have a good time together with the inhabitants of the camp. We named the event WOMEN EMPOWER WOMEN because we want to put emphasis on the needs and the voices of female refugees. When it comes to the so called „refugee crisis“ it’s mostly men who speak and represent. We try to create situations and spaces to also encourage women.

The performances start around 6pm – but feel free to come earlier to hang out with us and help creating the space.

The refugee camp is the ZEA (Zentrale Erstaufnahme) at Flagentwiet 44 in Schnelsen.

You can reach it via S-Bahn, go to the station Schnelsen, from there it’s 6 min walk. There will be signs to guide you.

Here’s our flyer in english (there are also versions in arabic, farsi, tigrinya and german):
