WORKSHOP AND PANEL PROGRAMME:
at Werkstatt der Kulturen
Sunday 8th October
3pm - 530pm
Elsa M'bala will be leading a listening and sound workshop, decentering the mostly white cis male dominated world of sound art. By decolonizing sound art and radio we create space for new voices and narratives, not just to be heard, but to be listened to. We invite the participants to bring sound examples to play and discuss in the workshop. With Shanti Suki Osman

Door Policy and Structural Racism in Berlin/Germany- What's the hap? What to do? (Panel talk and open discussion) Roberta Jordan a.k.a Roxy presents a small panel about a very important and current issue in the BPoC and queer scene: racism in the Berlin club culture and door policy.

Design Thinking Workshop "How to transform the door experience into a safe space?"
For the second half of the evening Roxy leads a design thinking workshop to develop some concrete strategies to the problems discussed.
By including perspectives from inside and outside the BPOC queer community we can really try to understand and consider the various identities and needs of people in these contexts and together build on positive steps forward. Invited workshop participants will be combined with members of the public. Invited guests include: activists working in the BPOC queer scene, night club employees and prominent DJanes
