Broaden your perspectives, learn something new, reconnect with someone you know or turn a stranger into a friend. From walks, talks, rallies and protests to sign-making, yoga and international cooking, we’ve tried to sprinkle something for everyone into our workshop calendar this fall.
And back by popular demand, two presenters from the Make One Change women’s gathering will return to the Women’s Centre this month to facilitate workshops: ACT Alberta will host a session on human trafficking and the Trans Hub will host a session on equality and transwomen.
We hope you find something that piques your interest!
All of our workshops are free to attend. Click here to see our full workshop and event calendar.
Fall Feminist Walk | Sept 12 (6-8pm) Come spend a fall evening with us walking, talking and hearing stories about women who have shaped our City. In collaboration with Calgary Sexual Health Centre and Take Back the Night Calgary we will also discuss current issues facing women and ways to get involved. Everyone is welcome.
Human Trafficking | Sept 17 (6-8pm)
Learn about situations in which women and young girls living in Alberta are trafficked for the purpose of sexual and labour exploitation. Together we will explore ways victims can be identified and supported.
Take Back the Night Calgary | Sept 20 (8pm) Take Back the Night Calgary is an annual event dedicated to raising awareness and protesting against violence against women. Join the Women’s Centre as we rally, march through the streets and raise our voices in support of ending all forms of violence against women. On September 19 we will also be hosting a sign-making workshop for the event.
Colombian Cooking and Women’s Issues | Sept 24 (6-8pm) Join us to cook and share a Colombian meal while talking about women’s issues in Colombia. All supplies provided.
Equality and Transwomen | Sept 26 (6-8pm) Living between the lines of our social binary, transwomen are shunned by men for giving up their perceived male privilege and denied acceptance by the cis-gendered women who feel threatened by them. Discuss the reasons for this animosity, solutions for change and ways to get involved.
Yoga | Mondays (6-7pm) This gentle yoga class is for all body types, age groups and experience levels. No previous yoga experience is necessary. All yoga supplies provided.
