Awareness is a tool for facilitating and hosting queer community spaces. Awareness is about creating environments for mutual queer support. Awareness is an attitude of attention and respect. Awareness is also a practice. Awareness is the organised effort to care for self and others. In concrete terms, this can mean conflict de-escalation, first aid, peer to peer mental health support, soft interventions and information dissemination.

This evening is dedicated to talking about the practice and politics of awareness. We ask: What is the importance of awareness for community organising? Does awareness help to deal with conflicts? Can awareness foster attention for differences within and between communities? Does it help overcoming power inequalities?

The event brings together queer community practitioners from different social and political segments. Our aim is to nurture intra-community connections and learn from each other in a time of transition.

The form of the event will be dialogical. It consists of a ‚talking‘ circle and a ‚listening‘ circle. We invite contributors and audience to move in and out between circles and participate in the debate.

The event will be fully analogue: No online screening. However, for archiving purposes, we will audio record the conversation.

After the event, there is a chance for informal gathering at café Abadän, which is located just downstairs in the same building.
