Reclaim the Day and Night!
11am Saturday 28th - 1am Sunday 29th
Free School, March, Gig!
The Edinburgh Anarcha-Feminist Collective is currently organising for Reclaim the Night which, this year, is going to take place on the 28th of May 2011 in Edinburgh. Events due to take place on the 28th of May include:
A freeschool day event on the subject of patriarchal violence, to include free workshops, discussion space, film, art and craft space, and more! This will be taking place upstairs in the Forest Cafe Hall, 3 Bristo Place, Edinburgh from 1pm – 5pm. All are welcome, come and hang out and prepare for the Reclaim the Night march with us! We want the space to be open and creative and to include whatever the people using would like from it, so please bring materials, energy and things to share!
A reclaim the night march gathering 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 9:00pm. There will be a banner making at the freeschool event during the day!
There will then be a post-march gig to celebrate after the march with live music from Scragfight, Hannah Werdmuller and Gudrun Hirt and then dancin’ to some fine feminist tunes. This will take place in Teviot Dining Room, Teviot row House, Bristo Square from 9:00pm till 3:00am.
The event is so far 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. We would love for more people/groups to get involved to make this a real collaborative project which reaches out to lots of different people. All events are free.
