Refuge Worldwide & Hildashaus celebrate Menstrual Awareness Day

FLOWfest takes place on May 28th.

By Staff

Join us for this free-to-attend, family-friendly event, welcoming everyone who menstruates and allies.

In collaboration with Hildashaus, a non-profit organisation with the mission of implementing "holistic, gender-sensitive solutions for displaced FLINTA* individuals aged 45+", we present FLOWfest. Taking place at our new location, Niemetzstrasse 1, on May 28th, FLOWfest presents a range of educational and artistic activities from 6 until 10PM.

The program features a talk with Flo Razoux and there will also be an open mic poetry & group composition facilitated by Sarah and Grace Soli Poetry Berlin, a newly organized fundraising event providing a space for FLINTA* poets to share their work in an inclusive open-mic setting. Queer Life Drawing will lead an untutored life drawing class that celebrates and pays tribute to the existence of queer and trans* bodies in all their forms. Elsewhere, explore the educational corner leading to the FLOWlibrary, a kid's corner for artistic activities, and much more.

There will also be some artwork displayed from Monika Kozub, also known as Berlin Boudoir. Monika is a Berlin based artist who explores the diverse spectrum of beauty in the world, placing emphasis on themes of nature and sexuality as means of empowerment.

During the event, enjoy free delicious vegan donuts from Brammibal's and gifts from Einhorn Berlin.

This is an opportunity to enjoy a great time together while contributing to an important cause: raising awareness about menstrual stigma and period poverty, and promoting period inclusivity.
