Over dit evenement

"One day you will be called on to break a big law in the name of justice and rationality. Everything will depend on it. You have to be ready. How are you going to prepare for that day when it really matters? You have to stay “in shape” so that when the big day comes you will be ready. What you need is “anarchist calisthenics.” Every day or so break some trivial law that makes no sense, even if it’s only jaywalking. Use your own head to judge whether a law is just or reasonable. That way, you’ll keep trim; and when the big day comes, you’ll be ready."
— James C. Scott, Two Cheers for Anarchism


Practice breaking (social) rules with us in this monthly series! Our first few sessions will be focused on building a group foundation on consent, relationship repair work and community. Then we will continue with devoted sessions to practice living lives according to our values, and not the scripts, social rules and laws that society has imposed on us. We will implement all the tools in our arsenal, from queer theory to silly improv games to sensual touch to kink and BDSM sessions - with a fair warning of which night we'll be doing what!

For anyone questioning the scripts that society is feeding you and consciously choosing your own path. For those who realize that the way things are is an unacceptable way forward. For those whose existence is at odds with the world and are forging new paths to being, connecting, and loving each other. Come join!


This is the first event! Everyone is welcome - no need to commit to the whole series right now. Come and get a feel for what we're trying to set up :) After introducing ourselves and what we want to do, we'll spend the day doing a workshop on the ideology of consent by Ella to set the groundwork for the series. The workshop will entail embodied exercises and group discussions, with some touch-based exercises weaved in towards the end. There will be lots of snacks and breaks. All of the exercises are invitations only - coming and taking a nap the whole day is also very welcome! After the workshop we'll share a potluck dinner together and then have an hour or so for some grounding, integration, cuddles, group discussions - whatever feels right in the moment :)


Naima (they/she) is a big fan of alternative forms of connecting and relating, kink, bdsm and play. On her path Naima realised that all of this and identifying as queer is inherently connected with not living in the "norm". Therefore their dream is to build a community and space where we can be honest, fearless, fearfull, juicy, happy, sad, political, sexy and outside the norm together!

Ella (they/them) is a bubbly and radically kind intimacy activist and workshop facilitator. They have fine tuned their ability to create safety and space in their workshops so that the societal armor can be left at the door. They love to play with words and are able to convey complex critical theory in simple, easy to grasp language. Their humor allows for playful engagement with heavy topics while always holding space for the depth of emotions.
