Experiment with Xenia

11 June 2020


Venue: Freedom [online location]

Organiser: Theodora Xenia

On the 4th anniversary of the first Xenia workshop, learn about how you could be a Xenia experimenter during lockdown and beyond.

Xenia brings together women from all cultures and backgrounds to connect with each other, share experiences, and practise English through creative workshops.

It began in 2016 as part of Antiuniversity Now at Hackney Museum, as an experiment for English-learning women and English-speaking women to connect and create together. From this one-off event we were asked to come back again and again by participants and it has since grown into a weekly workshop, where we welcome regulars and new faces from over 50 countries.

On our 4th birthday, we want to share how Xenia is adapting during lockdown and support you to bring aspects of our model into your work or local community - from what we’ve already learned about what can really work.

At this workshop you will:

hear (briefly!) about Xenia’s story, vision, and impact over the last 4 years; learn about our non-hierarchical model; be the first to see our new free online resources, giving you a step-by-step guide through how we do what we do; and come away with practical next steps of action you could take. This event is open to anyone (of any gender and background) who wants to learn from what we’re doing, supporting people who might not otherwise meet to connect through meaningful conversations. You may be interested in experimenting with Xenia-style workshops yourself, incorporating Xenia sessions into your organisation’s existing activities, or even starting up a local Xenia - everyone is welcome!

Take a look at our website for more information about Xenia and please get in touch if you have any questions.

We can’t wait to meet you!
