From the 27th of September and until October 3rd, a large number of youths residing in several European countries but my many different backgrounds came together in Quecke, an anti-discriminatory & self-organized queer feminist seminar house, in northeastern Brandenburg about an hour and half away from Berlin, Germany. The young activists came together in many enriching discussions where ideas and experiences were shared, that were the basis for the collective creation of practical tools that will challenge the ways in which we exercise our activism and organise events, making them more accessible to all. We had a whole a week of horizontal learning processes that included several workshops that were followed by avid discussion spaces that strengthened our networks of support and solidarity.
We developed collectively a myriad of communication skills that will aid us in the future in the process of expressing all of our inclusion needs and to negotiate around them to find ways to fulfill these needs so that our way of experiencing our activism and organising events is done in an inclusive and mindful manner. We learned together and empowered one another by sharing processes that were vital part of ample space we created during this week, a space where a diversity of ideas, as long rest and renewal also took place.
