The Reclaim Project & Good Day Cork invite you to a Wild Ones Salon to challenge power structures.

About this event

The June edition of Wild Ones Salon is created by Reclaim Project & Good Day Cork.

The theme is: Challenge power structures.

And, you're invited. This is your time to speak, be heard and to smash structures that uphold inequity and patriarchy.

More about the theme:

  • Do you chose to challenge power structures that uphold the inequalities at home, work, school, college, community, country, world?
  • How have power structures impacted you?
  • How can we reimagine these structures to reclaim our power?

Then this Wild Ones Salon is for you - Come as you are & reflect on these in a brave space of listening & sharing.

Some inspiration for us:

“Sometimes people try to destroy you, precisely because they recognize your power — not because they don’t see it, but because they see it and they don’t want it to exist.“

― bell hooks

AND

“In our country we use different words [than feminism] which mean the liberation or the emancipation of women. Of course I believe in the emancipation of women. It will change a lot of things in society for the better.

But, you know, the class patriarchal system under which we live oppresses men too and the discrimination from which women suffer is not good for the life of men. Don’t you think so?”

― Nawal El Saadawi

What will happen at this Salon?

Doors open at 7:15pm. We'll start at 7:30pm sharp. We'll welcome you with tea.

Bring along an object that reminds you of your power or helps you feel powerful & pen/pencil + paper/notebook

After we settle in, we'll spend few quiet moments to describe what brought you to the Salon - use words/visuals. You may choose to share your description with the group/circle - it's optional.

Following this, there will be two rounds of discussion, and for this we'll have a few table questions to help spark the conversations.

We'll close with a sharing round.

Like last month, we've set aside time for the 'Noble Call'. This is a song & poetry session where we call on each other to share! Of course, all languages are welcome.

We hope you'll feel heard, powerful, and empowered at the end of the night. The bar will be open till 9:45pm.

Please pay what you can. Suggested donation €10/€8.
