Event description

Description

The opening night will give a platform for various speakers, writers and activists who will be interviewed on what freedom of expression mean for them. This event addresses the decrease of freedom of expression around the world and ways to counter this phenomenon.

Speaker:
Speaker: Rachida Aziz (Belgium)
A community-builder. She relentlessly reflects and acts around the intertwining of struggles and strategies and she analyses how they impact the community-building process. She launched Azira, a clothing line and brand she designed herself back in 2008. After a few year as an entrepreneur, she promoted a new project in 2015: Le Space is a laboratory and try-out room for the cultural centre of tomorrow. It is a haven for the new hybrid identity, who feels right at home amongst the super diversity of our cities’ multilayered population. Le Space serves as an intersection where artists, activists, ecological start-ups and cultural organizations can meet. Above all, le Space is a safe space where respect and solidarity are the key values. Rachida’s book ‘Niemand zal hier slapen vannacht’ (Nobody is going to sleep here tonight) has been published by EPO
