Workshop: Eye To Eye – Let’s talk race and intersectionality // 23.05.19 – 18:30h

ENTRY: Donation based – between 2 to 5 euros (wha­tever you can afford)
For people of Asian descent.

“CHING CHONG. KONICHIWA. NIHAAAOOOOO.” (Ridiculing with eyes pulled back)
“Asian eyes are so beautiful.”
“all y’all look alike.”
“Same same.”
“oh, so you’re not a real Asian”

Let’s talk race and intersectionality

WHAT MAKES SOMEONE ASIAN?
The shape of their eyes, nose, mouth, ears, body?
The texture and shade of one’s skin?
The way one speaks?

Well, appar­ently it’s not for “Asian” people to define

This workshop will be led by Vicky Truong who hosted the first session during the WE ARE NOT SAME SAME fes­tival. The space aims to be “safer” and we ask that people who are not of Asian descent please not attend. Because, I mean, it’s like someone who’s not pregnant wanting to attend a birth giving workshop because they’re intrigued or want to just listen and learn; or even maybe insert their own inex­pe­ri­enced opi­nions. LOL, could you imagine.

The workshop’s aims are to provide a space for know­ledge, healing, con­nection and empowerment.

This workshop cannot deny limi­ta­tions to inclu­sivity. It will be in English (hope­fully with trans­lation pro­vided), but will use gender inclusive lan­guage. It is wheel­chair accessible.

Doors open at 18:30
Workshop will be for about 2 hours with a break.
We will have the space for 3–4 hours.
Hope to see y’all there

Venue: Aquarium am Südblock (Skalitzer Str. 6, 10999 Berlin)
