Join the Xenia Experiment – for more welcoming, equal and connected communities

Do you want people to be more connected and less divided? Join us on Saturday 11th January for a special event to explore how you can make the change you want to see in your community.

Xenia brings together women from all cultures and backgrounds to connect with each other, share experiences, and practice English through creative workshops.

It began in 2016 as part of Antiuniversity Now at Hackney Museum, as an experiment for English-learning women and English-speaking women to connect and create together. From this one-off event we were asked to come back again and again by participants and it has since grown into a weekly workshop, where we welcome regulars and new faces from over 50 countries.

We want to share Xenia’s model to inform practice and support you to hold your own experiment in your local community – inspired by what we’ve already learned about what can really work.

At this workshop you will:

  • learn about Xenia’s story, vision, and impact,
  • learn about our non-hierarchical model,
  • take part in a Xenia taster session
  • and come away with practical tips on how to hold your own event.

This event is open to anyone who wants to learn from what we’re doing, supporting people who might not otherwise meet to connect through meaningful conversations. You may be interested in holding your own event, incorporating Xenia sessions into your organisation’s existing activities, or even starting up a local Xenia – everyone is welcome!

This event is open to all genders. If you have barriers to attending (e.g. childcare or cost of travel) please get in touch with us.
