The new Finnish government started its term in June. The government programme, a 250 page document, is an important frame directing the Finnish politics for the next four years.
The programme can be read here
Come together to discuss issues of interest to feminist, anti-racist and anti-classist movement.
What will happen to equality in different fronts with the new government?
What have they promised for the education sector?
How about the new trans law?
Will there be changes to immigration laws?
How about unemployment benefits and pensions?
Let’s tackle together the government programme and the discussions thereof. It will be fruitful and fun to share the information we all have to better understand the whole of the government programme.
This FAR Night School Session will be conducted in the spirit of mutual learning, where we learn from each other and come up with better questions together. There will not be pre-tasks, but phones or laptops for seeking information might be useful during the session.
Participation is open to all. As in all our sessions, you are free to join for all or part of the session, and participate in ways that feel best for you. There is no compulsion to actively speak and participate, and silent observing is an equally welcome way of taking part in our collective learning process. We do ask all our participants to follow safer space guidelines that we will share at the beginning of the event. We will also have a dedicated person responsible for ensuring everyone enjoys a discrimination free experience.
FAR Night School sessions in autumn 2019 are realised in collaboration with Museum of Impossible Forms, as part of “In Practice”, a series focusing on practical feminist, anti-racist and class confrontational ways of being in different situations.
Welcome, see you soon!
Museum of Impossible Forms is a cultural space, located in Kontula, Helsinki. It is a contested Space and it represents a contact zone, a space of unlearning, formulating identity constructs, norm-critical consciousness and critical thinking. Impossible Forms are those that erase and facilitate the process of transgressing the boundaries/borders between art, politics, practice, theory, the artist and the spectator. For 2019-2020, Museum of Impossible Forms operates under the curatorial theme of ‘The Atlas of Lost Beliefs (For Insurgents, Citizens and Untitled Bodies)’
Museum of Impossible Formsis a safer space. It follows safer space policies to create a welcoming, inclusive, awesome environment.
Events at the Museum of Impossible Forms are completely free and accessible without prior booking.
Museum of Impossible Forms is accessible by lift with thresholds up to 4cm on the way. The toilet has no thresholds but is not spacious enough to meet accessibility standards. The nearest accessible toilet is located at Kontula metro station.
