Group picture in Liege, Belgium

In the frame of the GIVE-Lab project supported by the Erasmus+ programme, 24 participants from 7 European countries gathered between 25th and 27th of October 2022 in Liege, Belgium to discuss gender-based violence, to exchange views with specialists, and to share experiences using non-formal education tools.

An interdisciplinary seminar against gender-based violence!

On the first day, Marine Pansu, a gender specialist, run an interactive lecture workshop on gender stereotypes, rape culture, and privileges. 

During the workshop participants learnt how to develop a comprehensive policy against Sexual and Gender-Based Violence.

On the second day – using the methods of Theatre of the Oppressed, presented by Claudia Signoretti, participants experienced the emotions and problems of women and queer people in daily life situations. 

Activists of CRIBLE, a feminist and Queer Belgian NGO, introduced and discussed to participants the vocabulary within the LGBTQIA+ community and its spectrum. 

On the last day – Feyza Akınerdem, a gendered violence expert, shared the current situation of women in Turkey and the mechanisms of domination used against girls and women.

This seminar explored the project’s topic with speakers from different sectors: non formal education, social sciences, art, and activists from different organisations. 

See you in France in 2023!

More than ever, we, GIVE-Lab partners and participants have renewed our drive to fight for a just and free-of-gender violence  International Voluntary Service movement.

Based on the exchanges of knowledge and practices, we are happy to announce that we will once again reunite in a 5-day international laboratory in France to create an educational tool kit based on the outcomes of this seminar in February 2023.
