Ladyfest Leipzig (facebook)
Ladyfest is enabling us to occupy and redefine room and places which, for the most part, are "male"- occupied. To put it in a nutshell: to create free spaces. By offering different events, like concerts, workshops, lectures, exhibitions, we want to encourage feminists, women, lesbians, trans and queers to get creative, practice (queer-)feminist politics, learn from one another, inspire one another, share ideas and connect with one another. We can do that without pressure, free from capitalist restraints, without hierarchy and discrimination of any kind. We want to create a space in which interests can be acted out, in which you can present your talents to others, you can be in the spotlight and can create new role models. Let's smash those typically male-dominated rooms. Operate the mixer yourself, enter the stage, repair cars an bikes on your own, shoot your own movie, create your own fanzine or get into a debate on (queer-)feminism and its ideas. You will be able to do all of that. Check our programme and be there! We look forward to meet you!
