By Staff

To celebrate the collective power of feminist alliances in resistance against imperialist, capitalist, white supremacist, and heteronormative patriarchy, we're hosting a special program of music and discussion this 8 March (International Women's Day/Feministischer Kampftag).

Early birds can tune into representatives of Deep House Tehran hosting an ambient set from 07:00-09:00. Deep House Tehran is a platform from Iran founded in 2014 to support local and international artists in the electronic music scene. From 09:00-10:00 catch a conversation with BIWOC* Rising. The BiPoC FLINTA* collective has been a regular on Refuge Worldwide sharing their thoughts on moving toward intersectional justice, empowerment, and dismantling structures of discrimination.

From 10:00-12:00, Oroko Radio co-founder Kikelomo will take over the Breakfast Show, warming up the booth for another important political conversation. At noon we are joined by activists from Palestine Speaks. Their show “How Does Our Feminism Remake Our World: Palestine, Liberation, and Imagination” discusses how feminism informs political practices. Tune in to hear about their aspirations for liberation and justice in Palestine and beyond.

Refuge regular Emotional Labor Queen invites you to (anonymously) share all your deepest secrets and hard-to-ask questions. “hella matters of the heart” answers to your thoughts, conundrums and questions. Send them to emotional.labor.queen@gmail.com ahead of the show at 13:00.

São Paulo and Berlin-based DJ and curator Moretz will take us on a tour of electronic sounds. As Dykes on Decks Moretz showcases the diversity and plurality of what it means to be a Dyke while sharing some tunes.

From 15:00-19:00 AFOM International (A Friend of Mine), a record label and multidisciplinary platform run by Zozo will take over with Alicia Carrera, Roza Terenzi, and Electric Evelyn. MORT-MOI digs through the archives of synth, pop, and disco music. At 20:00 Kenza and Becki host a Honey Tapes session playing FLINTA*-produced house, garage and more. 

Nalamazon, known for curating a mix of Brazilian sounds from pop to bossa nova and baile funk, hosts a takeover from 21:00 with Ecrin Hazer, Müge, Sofia Clonn and Sesheta.
