Lymy Aperitivo 9: Querq

TL;DR: Come hang out and listen to a short presentation and discussion with Querq over drinks this Friday (October 11) at 6-9pm (main program starts already at 6:30).


Lymy continues its series of monthly Aperitivo nights. We gather once a month to meet each other and enjoy some drinks and interesting conversation. Start your weekend with us at Lymy! Cash is queen. ♥

In our fall aperitivos we will be focusing on spaces. Our first aperitivo is with the collective behind Querq: “a quirky cultural space at Nilsiänkatu 10, Helsinki … [that] focuses on exploring intimacy, along with artistic expression, sex positivity and personal development.” “With radical kindness at [their] core, [they] aim to unravel taboos and stigmas with feminist, queer, spiritual and critical approaches.”

We have given them the following questions as suggestions for what we might be interested in thinking about together with them on Friday and beyond: What are the political implications of having a space? How does having a space affect the collective? What are some challenges with having and maintaining a space and how do you deal with them? What made you decide to get a space?

The evening will consist of a very short introduction by us (starting at 6:30), a presentation by our guests (between 20-50 min) and some discussion followed by hanging out in a more informal setting till 9.

You are warmly welcome to the ninth Lymy Aperitivo to hear more from and about Querq and spend a wonderful evening together!
