Breaking the lawn!

When? Sunday May 27 may 2 pm.
OBS! Where? Den Frie Udstillingsbygning, Copenhagen OBS!

Dear colleagues,

We are invited by "Den Frie Udstillingsbygning"( in Copenhagen to give a lecture on organizing from our different perspectives. Instead of doing seperate presentations we decided to get together and make a round table conference on organizing with an open call for you experts out there!
Malmö Fria Kvinnouniversitet & Free Floating Faculty in collaboration with Kirsten Forkert proudly invite you to participate in this roundtable conference on the topic of 'organizing'. We will introduce and discuss ways of organizing and also let our methods speak through participatory handicrafts. While we are producing tools for action we will listen to talks by colleagues invited to enlighten us on how people have organized in the past and how people are organizing elsewhere.

If you have some materials for making banners and signs, like newspapers, paint or cardboard, please bring them. We will also provide materials as well as coffee, fruit and cakes! We hope to finish the conference by moving outside – picnic while breaking the lawn!

We would like to ask all of you to bring a practical tip on how to make organizing easier; maybe it is to never run out of coffee at meetings or structures to make sure that everyone participates. We want to get practical! The tips will be collected for a practical kit for wide distribution.

When? May 27 may 2 pm.
Where? Den Frie Udstillingsbygning, Oslo Plads – just across from Østerport Station where the S-trains/trains from Malmö Central station stop.
(Öresundståg from Malmö central 13:02 – Østerport Station 13:49.)

We also want to let you know that if you have kids you are welcome to bring them!

If you have any questions, please let us know
