We’re back!

Its time to start organising the next Reclaim the Night march, and so this is your first chance to get involved! Many of those involved in organising the last march are unable to commit to another run so we’re looking for some new women to get involved with the next one, to bring new ideas, energy, planning skills etc. We’ll be meeting Monday the 9th (this Monday) at 6pm in the Filmhouse cafe (good wheelchair access, feel free to bring children). This is a chance for those who have been involved in the past to hand over the information and skills they have collected to those who want to organise the next one. You’re not making a massive commitment by coming along, feel free to come along if you just want to find out about more.

The filmhouse cafe is quite big, so if you can’t find us or just don’t know anyone then feel free to call 07988187031 and we will come find you!

Next Skillshare

Will be this Sunday (the 22nd) from 2-5 at 1b Greenhill Terrace in Bruntsfield (just off Whitehouse Loan).  We’re going to be doing some basic British Sign Language, learning the alphabet, how to say our names, where we live, what we do and how to greet people.

If you want to learn some new skills in a relaxed and totally non-intimidating environment then we’d love to see you there.

Reclaim the Night Gig

In order to raise money for causes to end violence and the fear of violence against women, comedienne and activist Liz Ely is being sponsored to wear a beard for a week! Motivated by the lack of funding for women’s organisations, Liz came up with idea as way to gain both funds and attention for women’s organisations.

‘I’m too lazy to run a marathon, and too much of a wimp to throw myself out of a plane. What I am good at is getting attention, and I have a very high embarrassment threshold’

The week of beard wearing will commence on the 20th of February, and Liz will keep a live blog of her experiences.

‘I am passionately committed to the fight against men’s violence towards women, hopefully when people ask me why the hell I have a fake beard on, I can tell them a bit about Reclaim the Night. I can use my attention seeking nature for good instead of evil’.

The beard challenge will be launched on the 18th of February, starting 7.30 at The Bowery with performances from raging eccentric Withered hand, the more ballsy Americana sound of glasgow based trio Sparrow and the Workshop and Fence collective favourite Jo Foster.

The money raised will be split between Reclaim the Night 2009, a march taking place on international women’s day, and Zero Tolerance an Edinburgh based organisation committed to tackling violence at its cause.
