We are inviting all womyn for a weekend of workshops and skill-share to learn and openly discuss ways of taking control of our own health.

We are a newly created and organised squatted social centre in which self-identified womyn and trans people can come and take part in workshops, skill-share and discussions. We work collectively to find ways to challenge capitalism and gender oppression, as well as providing a safer space for womyn folk to rest in.
